Scholarship Purpose: The Karen Deske Scholarship was established in December 1994 following her death. Karen was the first graduate of Illinois State University's Master in Art Therapy, receiving her degree in 1987. The Scholarship required the Recipient be a graduate art therapy student in his or her second semester or have taken 9 to 12 hours of graduate art therapy and counselor education classes. The Art Therapy program is no longer active and the criteria no longer valid.
