The Beaverton Arts Foundation, founded in 1999 to inspire investment and steward resources that help local arts and culture flourish, announces scholarships to outstanding high school seniors and PCC students in the visual and performing arts. Multiple $1,500 scholarships will be awarded in each of two categories:

Outstanding Achievement in the Visual Arts, which includes traditional 2D and 3D media, graphic design, video and film, and digital arts/media.

Outstanding Achievement in the Performing Arts, which includes music, dance, theater, improv/comedy, tech crew (studio recording and production), and stage crew (lighting, sounds, rigging).

High school and homeschooled students must currently be in their senior year and must attend a public, private, or alternative high school within Beaverton School District boundaries. We are also offering scholarships to college students who are currently enrolled in courses at Portland Community College. There is no age limit for these scholarships, but applicants must be living within the Beaverton School District or have attended a public, private, or alternative high school within Beaverton School District boundaries.
