The Grace Ross Shanley Scholarship Fund was named in honor of the founder of the Center for Contemporary Printmaking. Grace Ross Shanley was a firm believer both in the importance of community and the need for ongoing education about printmaking. The mission of this fund is to further the growth of artists and foster the next generation of printmakers. Components include the High School Student Fellowship Program, Self-Funded and Professional Development Artist-in-Residencies. It also supports an arts administration externship program. Planning is under way for additional supported programs to enhance the skills and development of artists and increase public awareness and appreciation of printmaking.
