Scholarships

In keeping with its continuing support for education, The ARTA scholarship program is made possible by the generosity of ARTA Members and Orbit Insurance Services, a service partner for home and auto insurance. Orbit Insurance Services provides, through ARTA, scholarships to students who are related to an ARTA member. These scholarships recognize academic achievement plus community involvement and volunteer work. Future goals, personal accomplishment and supporting letters of reference will also be significant in the overall determination of the scholarship recipients

ARTA also awards two scholarships for ARTA 101 Members (active teachers) and their relatives.
