Al Caniff Art Scholarship

The Al Caniff Art Scholarship has been established by Al Caniff, Professor of Art, to provide scholarship assistance to Western Colorado University students majoring in Art.

This scholarship serves to honor a selected BFA Senior who includes co-curricular activities and service to the Art program. This scholarship is to also honor Veterans of the United States Armed Service who are an enrolled BFA Senior at Western Colorado University.

Part of the monies collected from Al selling his Art work at Western’s Annual Art Sale are added to the scholarship fund. This allows other people to participate in giving.

Al’s encouragement for recipients of this scholarship is to create to your Heart’s content!

The quote that captures the spirit of this scholarship is

“I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.”- Kahill Gibran
