“Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.” - Stella Adler

For many people in the LGBTQ+ community, art is a transcendental mechanism for healing, joy, and self-expression. Opening unique opportunities helps mitigate the many societal barriers that persist and limit their journey toward equal opportunity and success.

As one small part of supporting the importance of art in the LGBTQ+ community, LGBTQIA Arts and Personal Development Scholarship exists to support an LGBTQ+ student who is incredibly passionate about their artwork and is looking to pursue a career in the arts, beauty, or personal development.

To apply, please include an essay talking about your future and how this scholarship opportunity will benefit you. Feel free to include images of your work!
