"Never let anyone define you. You are the only person who defines you." - Terry Crews
Before becoming one of the biggest stars in film and television, before becoming a professional athlete, Terry Crews was a kid in Flint, Michigan who loved art. Terry worked hard to practice and develop his skills in both painting and music, earning an art scholarship that allowed him to attend college, where he then began an athletic career that would take him to the NFL.
Today Terry works hard to entertain the world on screen, and to change it for the better off-screen by speaking out and using his voice for good, becoming a source of inspiration for people around the globe.
In an effort to continue to lift up those in need, the Terry Crews "Creative Courage" Scholarship is designed to create more opportunities for struggling artists chasing their dreams. One artist will receive $20,000 to use toward their artistic development and education.
To apply, submit a link to an original art piece you've created. Whether your passion is painting, photography, drawing, music, sculpture, or any other art form, share a piece that you are proud of and that demonstrates your artistic vision.
Please also share a brief statement about your vision, the life experiences that have molded it, and your artistic dreams for the future.
The application deadline is Feb 1, 2022. Winners will be announced on Mar 15, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 15, 2022. 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.
