Scholarship Report Requirements

  • Keep a daily journal to assist in the creation of and to provide content for your scholarship report. Your daily journal is not your scholarship report. Rather, your journal helps to create and inform your report.

  • Capture both the process and product of your learning experience every day through substantial narratives and supplemental materials such as photos, writing samples, works in progress, videos, sketches, collage, etc.
  • Meet the required length of the scholarship report: Whether your report is in a Word Document, PowerPoint or blog, your narrative for each day must be at least 2 pages double spaced. Photos, sketches, and other supplemental documentation are not part of your daily narrative, but can be included with it.
  • Submit your completed scholarship report by the given deadline via email, regular mail, or blog/website link. Large files must be sent through a free online service like www.yousendit.com, www.dropbox.com or on a CD or DVD. Incomplete reports will result in a full fee tuition charge payable to Arts Horizons – aTi.
