Financial Assistance

ARCOS recognizes the need for independent artists to cultivate their personal practice and believes that cost should not be a barrier to pursuing artistic excellence. Scholarships are awarded based on talent, merit, and need. Internships are awarded to individuals who demonstrate a high level of artistic excellence, financial need, and professional initiative. By completing this form you are applying.
