Visual Arts Scholarship Application


La Quinta Arts Foundation’s Visual Arts Scholarship Program has awarded over $1.23 million to local students pursuing college degrees in the visual arts since the beginning of the program in 1984.

Annual scholarship awards are made possible with proceeds garnered from LQAF events including La Quinta Arts Festival and others; La Quinta Arts Foundation memberships; as well as contributions by community partners, individual donors and memorial contributions.

Current Scholarship recipients receive recognition of their progress and talent on LQAF website for new work created, and their accomplishments. Become a fan and follow LQAF on Facebook, enjoy our fantastic events and support deserving scholarship students in the process.
