About the Anthony Quinn Scholarship Program

Organized as a vehicle to perpetuate Anthony Quinn’s vision for an art conscious society, the Anthony Quinn Foundation Scholarship Program raises and distributes funds for arts education. The Scholarship Program focuses on the Visual Arts & Design, Dance, Theatre, Singing, Instrumental, Media Arts, and Literary Arts for young adults in high school. Scholarship recipients can apply Foundation funds to any recognized pre-college or arts education program. Funds awarded will be sent directly to the pre-college or arts education program designated by the student. The Anthony Quinn Foundation Scholarship cannot be used for secondary school or college tuition.


The Scholarship Program is for young adults in high school who demonstrate exceptional talent and dedication with a strong commitment to personal artistic growth and who will benefit from financial support. The Foundation makes an effort to distribute the funds evenly across the fields of focus: Visual Arts & Design, Dance, Theatre, Singing, Instrumental,, Media Arts, and Literary Arts.

Scholarships are awarded competitively.  Applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges in order to select scholarship recipients.  Judges are practicing artists, arts educators, and experts in the various fields of focus, completely independent from the Foundation’s Board/staff, and geographically dispersed throughout the United States.

Additional information may be sought directly from the applicant.
