About the Program
Anthony Quinn Foundation Scholarships
The Anthony Quinn Foundation Scholarship Program was established to commemorate Anthony Quinn’s contribution to the arts and support his vision for an art conscious society. The Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to high school students who wish to attend a recognized pre-college, or summer intensive arts education program.
The application period is now closed and will reopen again in October 2019.
Judging panel will be made up of practicing artists, art educators, and experts in the various fields of focus. Judges are completely independent from the Foundation’s board/staff, and are geographically dispersed throughout the United States.
The Foundation makes an effort to distribute the funds evenly across all artistic disciplines. The maximum scholarship award is $2,500. Since the tuition costs of many summer intensive programs can exceed this amount, we encourage our applicants to plan for and to seek partial funding from other sources.
The Scholarship Program is an annual competition for high school students seeking funding to attend summer intensive arts programs. Applicants must demonstrate exceptional talent, dedication and a strong commitment to personal artistic growth.
The Scholarship Program focuses on the Literary Arts, Media Arts (Film, Photography, Animation, Anime and Computer Graphics), Performing Arts (Dance, Theater, Singing, Instrumental) and the Visual Arts & Design. Scholarship recipients can apply Foundation funds to any recognized pre-college or arts education program.
Funds awarded will be sent directly to the arts education program designated by the student. The Anthony Quinn Foundation Scholarship cannot be used for secondary school or college tuition. Past Anthony Quinn Foundation Scholarship recipients are not eligible to apply again.
