Student Grants


Dear Aspiring Artists,

We?re delighted to welcome you to the application process for the JLLOOPPAA Student Grants Program. Our mission is to nurture young talent and passion in Music, Art, Theater, and Dance. With these grants, we aim to provide additional support for your artistic pursuits that your schools or communities may not regularly provide.

The Tanya Ellis Music Grant, Joanie Hanson for Art, and Joia Bear Grant for Theater/Dance are worth up to $500 each. These funds are designed to cover costs associated with lessons, workshops, supplies, and other expenses to help you excel in your chosen art form.

Remember, this is not just about financial support; it?s about recognizing talent and dedication in our youth and helping to foster a future where those who love the arts can continue to learn, grow, and thrive.

We encourage you to take this opportunity and apply if you have a burning desire to refine your artistic skills and make your mark. It?s your chance to tell us about your passion and dreams and how this grant can help you achieve them.

Please take the time to carefully read through the application form and fill it out in detail. All information about the submission and review process, deadlines, and terms of the grant are included in the form. If you have any questions, don?t hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to learning about you, your aspirations, and your passion for the arts. Best of luck with your application!

With warm regards,

Janet Hunt
Executive Director
JLLOOPPAA Grant Committee
