The Anthony Quinn Foundation announces the opening of the application period for the 2016 Scholarship Program.
Modeled after the personal experience of Anthony Quinn, the scholarship program distributes funds for high school students interested in the arts who wish to attend a pre-college, or summer intensive arts education program. Students from around the world are invited to apply and must be enrolled in high school or officially registered as a home-schooled high school student. Applications are reviewed by a panel of judges, all professional artists or art educators and independent of the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
