Minorities are starting to make inroads in the media and entertainment industry, but it's time to provide a bigger presence in mainstream media.
Minorities are typically poorer than others, so they often lack the resources to get the chance to showcase their brilliant ideas and talent.
As one part of supporting minorities in the arts, the Elevate Minorities in the Arts Scholarship exists to support students from a minority background who are looking to excel in any art and entertainment fields, including film, radio, television, theater, and more.
This scholarship is open to all minority students who are interested in or are already enrolled in courses going toward a degree in the arts. To apply, you must write about what inspires you to create art and how you will use this scholarship to further develop in the arts and entertainment world.
What inspires you to create the art that you do? How will you use this scholarship to propel you toward your dreams in the arts and entertainment world?
The application deadline is Apr 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Apr 13, 2021.
The scholarship award is $516 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 13, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. 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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
