Jerome Weisman Scholarship

The family of the late Jerome Weisman has established a scholarship in his honor. For 43 years, Jerry Weisman provided thousands of unfailingly beautiful and apt illustrations for Highlights for Children. The scholarship provides support for an illustrator to attend a Highlights Foundation course of their choice, either online or in-person.

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.
