The tradition of the La Quinta Arts Foundation Visual Art Scholarship Awards continues with the announcement of 26 students who were granted $32,500 to attend college for the 2010/2011 academic year.

Since it was instituted in 1984, La Quinta Arts Foundation’s Visual Arts Scholarship Program has awarded $910,502 to local students pursuing college degrees in the visual arts.

In keeping with La Quinta Arts Foundation’s non-profit mission of “Promoting and Cultivating the Arts” annual scholarship awards are made possible with proceeds garnered from LQAF events including La Quinta Arts Festival, Art Under the Umbrellas, La Quinta Blues & Brews; La Quinta Arts Foundation memberships; as well as contributions by community partners and other memorial contributions.

LQAF Visual Arts Scholarship applications and art portfolios are submitted online beginning in February, and reviewed by the volunteer LQAF Scholarship committee each April.
