The Erin Warmels Scholarship Fund

The Erin Warmels Scholarship Fund was created in 2016 in memory of Erin Warmels, a former Lansing Art Gallery exhibiting artist. Erin’s experience included education at Kendall College of Art and Design, as well as exhibiting in the greater Lansing area. Lansing Art Gallery provides scholarships for students in need to cover the costs of classes, camps, supplies, and application fees. Additionally, merit scholarships are provided for Art Scholarship Alert and the Michigan Collegiate Art Exhibition. Click here to give to the Erin Warmels Scholarship Fund.
