The Bay Ridge Festival of the Arts not only provides a venue for local artists to show their work, but also raises funds to provide scholarships to deserving and talented students. In 2011, we awarded $1,300 in grants.

To be eligible, graduating students must: plan to continue their studies in the field of visual or performing arts at a professional school, or as an art major in college and either live or attend school in the area bounded by 62nd Street to the Bay and from Shore Road to 14th Avenue.

The talents, achievements, scholastic record, interests and financial background of the applicant will be considered by the Scholarship Committee in awarding grants. Grants will be subject to acceptance and proof of attendance of the applicant at a professional school or college.

Applications (PDF) are available via the link below.

We ask that applications be postmarked by June 22th, 2012.
