To maintain ties to the community and to promote the study of collage, Collage Artists supports an annual scholarship for a deserving art student.

Ashley Mistriel is a graduate student at California State University, Northridge. She uses collage, transfers and illustration to create simple yet profound images that reflect the themes that revolve around the importance of family as a unit. In 2008, Ashley was accepted into the CSU Summer Arts Residency in Florence, Italy. In 2009, she received a BA in Illustration from CSUN. Ashley's work has been featured in American Illustration issues 31 and 32, and at several galleries in the Los Angeles area.
