DIVERSIFY SCIENCE SCHOLARSHIP FOR ILLUSTRATORS

The Diversify Science Scholarship is designed to encourage the artistic growth of Indigenous, Black, and people of color who are interested in science and nature illustration.

This scholarship supports attendance at an illustration workshop offered through the Highlights Foundation (online or in-person). It is intended for a recipient who is actively pursuing science and nature illustration within the children’s publishing industry.

Our goal is to help open the field to more diverse creators, to provide role models for future illustrators, and to reflect a broader range of readers in children’s literature.

Visiting Our Campus

Our campus (The Barn at Boyds Mills) is tucked away in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.  It's a few hours from both New York City and Philadelphia, but worlds away from everyday life.
