Geri Gordon Scholarship Fund

The Geri Gordon Scholarship Fund was established in 1998 to celebrate former Art League School Director Geri Gordon’s remarkable vision and dedication. We strive to offer scholarship awards for art classes each term to students of all ages and abilities who could not otherwise afford to enroll. Since the inception of the Scholarship Fund, The Art League has awarded hundreds of scholarships.

Furloughed & Frontline Scholarship Fund

The Furloughed & Frontline Scholarship Fund is a small tuition waiver program established for qualifying corona-related furloughed workers and frontline workers.

The scholarship is available to Alexandria and DMV based workers furloughed due to the corona virus crisis. It is also available to Alexandria and DMV based frontline health care or service industry workers, and postal and package carriers.

Starting April 13, 2020, all online and future onsite classes will be eligible for Furloughed & Frontline Scholarship applications.
