The Iranian Artist Scholarship began in 2001 due to generous
donations by individuals in the United States. A jury panel selects an
artist every year to receive $1000 towards their studies of Fine Art.
To be eligible you must be an Iranian or Iranian-American artist living
and studying Fine Arts in the United States between the ages of 18-30.
Please go to call for scholarship for more
information about how to apply and donate to this fund.
This is the ONLY scholarship of its kind in the United States dedicated
to our young Iranians pursuing Fine Art. We would like to be able to give
more than one award each year for $1,000. Any amount of donation would
be greatly appreciated and used to support, encourage and promote our
young artists. Visit our donation page to find
