Art Scholarship Alert (ASA) is a juried art exhibition and scholarship competition for 9th - 12th graders residing or attending school in Ingham, Clinton, Eaton, Ionia, Shiawassee, Barry, Livingston, Calhoun and Jackson counties. This program gives recognition and financial assistance to outstanding art students, encourages artistic growth, and provides young artists an opportunity to participate in a professional gallery setting. For more than 30 years, Lansing Art Gallery has proudly hosted Art Scholarship Alert and awarded $106,000 to young artists to help further their creative endeavors.

ASA applicants submit an online digital portfolio of original works of art. A jury of art professionals determines acceptance and awards based on the quality, consistency, and depth of work in the portfolio. One portfolio at each grade level receives an ASA Portfolio Award and has multiple works displayed. All other accepted portfolios have one work exhibited.

In addition to the ASA portfolio competition, students at the senior level may apply for the $1,000 Sara Jane Venable Scholarship (SJV), which is awarded to a student in his/her pursuit of higher education in the visual arts and used for tuition assistance.

The 2015 Art Scholarship Alert Competition marked the first year Lansing Art Gallery had an all online submission process.
