Society often views creative careers as inferior to traditional jobs and deems art careers irrelevant in the workforce. Whether it be music, dance, fashion, design, theater, or anything else, art is a vital part of our world. Due to the stigma around art careers, it takes courage and confidence to pursue them, especially for students from low-income backgrounds.

This scholarship aims to support marginalized teens in California who are pursuing careers in the arts to have the financial support and resources to actualize their ambitions.

To apply, tell us how the arts have affected your life, if there were any challenges you had to overcome, and If so, how you over came them. Optionally, you can add pieces of art you've created that you take pride in.

10 awards are given each cycle. First prize is $1,000. The remaining $5,500 disbursed across nine $500 awards. The winners will be announced on April 1, 2024.
