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 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.

  • YAYA alumni of any age and career status are encouraged to apply. The Foundation is interested in supporting YAYA alumni of diverse ages who have a range of experience - from recent high school graduates to more established professional artists, as well as those who seek to nurture their creative pursuits while juggling the many demands of life.

  • Past award recipients are eligible to reapply to the Foundation. The previous final reporting requirements have been suspended at this time as we develop new ways to work with awardees to document their experiences.
