Across history, art has led, documented, and reflected social change.
Nearly every major protest or revolution is remembered through its art, often with a single photograph or illustration coming to define the moment for generations to come.
As the Black Lives Matter movement fights for change, it is important to support the artists and artwork that document the protest, elevating and furthering the cause.
This grant is for a Black student who is furthering a protest or social change through any form of visual art.
Through a short essay and portfolio submission, please share how your work as a visual artist intersects with social change.

We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
