Despite the contributions of artists from a diversity of backgrounds and cultures, many have been historically excluded from opportunities and leadership within the realm of professionals. The WCEJ Thornton Foundation believes it is critical to support the creative ambitions of these individuals to create a future with a greater diversity of voices within the artistic community.
To support this ideal, the WCEJ Thornton Foundation Music & Art Scholarship will be awarded to fifteen individuals with an interest in continuing their study of the arts in higher education, with preference given to arts majors. To apply, please write about how you plan to make a positive impact on the world through your art. Additionally, please submit some samples of your artwork/music/other creations!
