In response to the elimination or severe reduction of funding for arts education in local school districts, South Shore Arts offers scholarship programs that allow artistically-gifted students from lower-income schools to attend our programs at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster, the South Shore Arts branch in Crown Point and at Substation No. 9 in downton Hammond at a reduced fee or no charge. These opportunities are especially important as they benefit students who most need the individualized exposure and training in the arts that is often not available to them.
