Grants & Scholarships for Artists

The Ana & Adeline Foundation Grant & Scholarship Program funds opportunities in visual arts and design for YAYA alumni representing a range of ages, stages in their careers, and disciplines. Grants and scholarships range from $750 to $10,000.


Grants are for projects designed to push the limits of individual creative process, to take risks, to collaborate with other artists, and/or to engage with a broader community through art. Grants may also be used to build professional resources and/or to advance entrepreneurial endeavors in the visual arts and design.


Scholarships are for tuition & living expenses to attend an accredited college or university to pursue a degree or take courses related to the field of visual arts, design, or other studies that contribute to a career in the arts.  Scholarship recipients may apply for up to 5 consecutive years as long as they are enrolled either as part-time or full-time student or until they earn a degree, whichever comes first.

Who is eligible to apply?

  • YAYA alumni, as defined by the Foundation, are artists who: 1) participated in YAYA for a minimum of two consecutive years and 2) graduated from high school or earned a GED.
