College Partner Sponsorship Levels


Selecting a Sponsorship

Please take a few moments to read over the Illinois High School Art Exhibition program sponsorship levels. The IHSAE is dedicated to recognizing students’ artistic achievements and creating opportunities for post-secondary art education.  In order to achieve our goal, it is essential to develop a mutually beneficial relationship with the nation’s top Art Schools, Colleges, and Universities. The IHSAE is asking institutions that choose to participate in our program to commit to some type of sponsorship in the way of scholarship and/or student awards. The level of sponsorship can be selected from, but not limited to the following: monetary sponsorship, full or partial scholarships, and/or early college program/art camps/summer intensive scholarships. Together, with your support,the IHSAE will have the ability to provide unique opportunities that will lead students onto your campus, increasing the possibility of them pursuing a degree in the Visual Arts.

How IHSAE Sponsorship works

The IHSAE offers three different sponsorship levels for those interested in being part of our program. Our Gold level is our most exclusive sponsorship offered. However, the IHSAE only offers a total of 12 Gold level sponsorships per year. Our Silver level sponsorship is a great way for your institution to have a significant impact in the IHSAE program. The Bronze level is our introductory level sponsorship that will allow those with a smaller budget to still participate in the IHSAE. Please read more about the specific benefits the IHSAE can offer your institution. *Sponsorships can also be tailored to meet the needs of your specific institution upon request. The IHSAE is a tax deductible 501(c)(3) organization.
