Frisco Arts recognizes the hard work, talent, and vision it takes to be an artist, and we believe it is important to invest in those who pursue a career in the arts. We are proud to award scholarships through the Frisco Education Foundation to FISD seniors who plan to major in music, dance, theater, visual, technical arts, and arts education. To apply, please visit the Frisco Education Foundation website.
Frisco Arts has also established an endowed scholarship through the Collin College Foundation. Proceeds from the initial investment of $25,000 will provide a full scholarship for select students pursuing a career in the arts each year.
Congratulations to Jessica Dressler, recipient of the 2018 AT&T Frisco Arts Endowed Scholarship at Collin College! (seen here with Board Treasurer Ken Looney and President Julie Shipp)
"I have worked very hard to be able to attend college since I would have not been able to do so without the means and aid of scholarships. This scholarship is important to me as it will enable me to move forward with my education while also allowing me to continue exploring my interests and passions in the field of art. Thanks to your generosity and support, I am able to continue my educational journey and college career. I wish to one day bring my ideas and inspirations to the world through my artwork."
