We fund individual students, educational institutions, and artists and programs in the arts. We cannot provide funding to individuals groups who support institutions or want to raise funds in support of an institution; rather, institutions may apply on their own behalf.
Q: When are grants and scholarships given?
Please see our Apply page for eligibility requirements and the application process. Scholarships and RFPs will be announced in September, with rolling application submissions from January to May. Rolling submissions allow for the review committee to respond to applicants in a timely manner so they do not miss opportunities associated with admissions, down payments, etc.
Q: Can I get more than one scholarship?
Scholarships shall be awarded yearly, and students may receive funding for up to four years. Funding is not limited to tuition costs, but may also cover room and board; however, distribution payments will be made semi-annually. Scholarship guidelines for renewal require that the scholarship recipient complete an application annually, rather than permitting an automatic renewal of the scholarship. It is recommended that students reapply on an annual basis.
