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

Join our community of Arts Scholars! Established in 1998, the MIT Arts Scholars Program brings together undergraduate* students who are passionate about exploring the diverse array of arts available at MIT and in the Boston area. 

The mission of the MIT Arts Scholars is to promote an active and inclusive community of MIT students with an exceptional interest in the arts, whether one is an active practitioner or an ardent appreciator. This peer-driven arts community gets together regularly for hands-on art-making activities, outings to local arts attractions, and provides resources to encourage personal artistic practice.

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

* Graduate students are invited to join the Grad Arts Forum; contact Shannon Rose for more information.
