Arts Scholars

Fostering an active community of MIT students
with an exceptional interest in the arts.

 

Established in 1998, the MIT Arts Scholars Program brings together students who are passionate about exploring the diverse array of arts available at MIT and in the Boston area, and interacting with fellow students, faculty artists and other experts in the art world. The program is structured around monthly excursions or workshops, with an expert in the relevant field of art in attendance.

The mission is to foster an active community of MIT students with an exceptional interest in the arts. The community’s resultant role is that of an arts leadership group, cultivated through events and mentorship.

The Arts Scholars Program is funded in part due to the generous support of the Council for the Arts at MIT.
