Each year, the Corona Art Association awards scholarships in the name of founding member Maxine Piester, to graduating twelfth-grade students within the Corona-Norco Unified School District (CNUSD) service area (including all public, private, and home school seniors). Any graduating senior planning to pursue a higher education in any of the visual arts (including painting, drawing, print-making, sculpture, jewelry-making, metallurgy, glass art, photography, animation, illustration, digital media, and film), and will enroll at a university, community college, or vocational school, for the 2023-2024 academic year, are eligible to submit a scholarship application.

The number of scholarships and dollar amount depend on the amount of fundraising we accomplish during the preceding year.  Private donations can also be pledged to the Art Scholarship Program. All donations, including scholarship donations, are tax deductible.
