Every student at the League benefits from our affordable monthly tuition, which represents only about half of the actual cost of classes. Additionally, students are eligible to apply for tuition relief through the League's merit-based scholarships and grants.

The League’s scholarship program is historic. It has continued to grow each year with renewed involvement from donors and foundations, as well as existing the legacy scholarship funds that have been the foundation of this program from decades.

Notable artists who have received League scholarships include Norman Rockwell, James Rosenquist, Tschabalala Self, and more.
