The Niagara Pumphouse Arts Scholarship for Art Education was set in 2010 after the passing of Ian Butler, a founding member of the Pumphouse. The purpose of the fund is to support an annual scholarship award to a deserving NOTL graduating high school student pursuing a recognized post-secondary visual arts program. From the fund, a $200 scholarship will be awarded each year to a selected student.
