Our Call for Applications for the 2024 YVR Art Foundation Scholarships are NOW OPEN.
YVRAF offers scholarships of $5000 each for Emerging (age 17-29) and Mid-Career (age 30+) BC and Yukon First Nations artists. Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis to Emerging and Mid-Career Artists who create visual art that reflects BC or Yukon First Nations culture and who wish to further their artistic career by expanding their work or practice into a new area. Scholarship awards may go towards studying or working with a Mentor or Master Artist, attending a school of art, or creating an art project of cultural significance for the artist’s community. Visual Art can include (but is not limited to) drawing, painting, digital art + design, illustration, carving, sculpture, printmaking, textiles, animation, photography, video and film.
Scholarship recipients will also get to exhibit their artwork at the YVR Vancouver International Airport in 2025. (Optional for Mid-Career Scholarship recipients)
Check out the program pages for more information on eligibility and specific application guidelines for either Emerging or Mid-Career Scholarship Awards.
Please contact the YVR Art Foundation Program Coordinator if you require accommodations or assistance when completing the application.
