American Indian Student Art Note Cards Fund Scholarships and School Grants
Each year, images are selected from the works submitted for judging at the Heard Museum Guild American Indian Student Art Show and Sale by students in grades 7 through 12. Note cards and other items are produced from these images. Profits from the sale of these unique products support scholarships for American Indian students. The number of scholarships awarded each year depends upon the amount of money raised. The proceeds also fund grants to art teachers to purchase art supplies.
The Note Cards are 5″ X 7″ and are blank inside. The artist’s name, tribal affiliation, and age are printed on the back of the card. The cards are sold in packets of 8 of either the same image or several images; envelopes are included. They are created and printed in the U.S.A.
A selection of cards is available at major museums including the Heard Museum, the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. and New York City, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe and the Amerind Museum and many shops throughout the Southwest.
Since 1992, this worthy project has awarded nearly $300,000 in scholarships to American Indian students continuing their post-high school education. Over $100,000 in grants have also been made available to art teachers for art supplies. To assist in this effort, donations can be made to the Heard Museum Note Card Scholarship Fund.

Heard Museum Guild members are dedicated to making educational opportunities available to American Indian students. They select the art as well as produce, pack, and sell the cards. For further information about the Guild’s Student Art Show and Sale, click here.
