Art is an essential part of the world, bringing happiness and fulfillment to those who create it and those who appreciate it.
Art can also make a real impact on communities. Whether art adds to a city’s cultural identity, displays an important message about a problem or social issue, or simply adds color and beauty to the area, it can bring about positive change in the lives of community members.
This scholarship aims to support students who are interested in pursuing art and using their art to make a difference in the world.
Any high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is pursuing art, has a creative art portfolio, and has non-profit or volunteering experience may apply for this scholarship.
