Society often views creative careers as inferior to traditional jobs and deems art careers irrelevant in the workforce.
However, art - whether it be music, dance, fashion, design, theater, or anything else - is a vital part of our world. Due to the stigma around art careers, it takes courage and confidence to pursue them, especially for students from low-income backgrounds.
This scholarship aims to support marginalized teens in California who are pursuing careers in the arts so they have the resources they need to achieve their dreams.
Any low-income high school senior in California who has at least a 2.5 GPA and is pursuing the arts may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us how the arts have affected your life, if there were any challenges you had to overcome, and If so, how you over came them. Optionally, you can add pieces of art you've created that you are proud of.
