One hundred percent of Arts Emerging sponsorships will go towards student scholarships and community arts programs during a time when need is great. Many of our students have lost jobs in the past year, making scholarship funds more important than ever.
As an added incentive to sponsor both Arts Emerging in 2021 and ARTS by George! in 2022, sponsors who commit to supporting both events will be invited to a special event on February 12, 2022, when the Center for the Arts welcomes Kristin Chenoweth to the stage! That evening will end with a VIP post-concert experience with Ms. Chenoweth! Please fill out this form or email Emily Rusch if you are interested in taking advantage of this special opportunity!
Fans of ARTS by George!, please know that ARTS by George! will return on September 24, 2022 in its usual form.

Scholarships have tremendously impacted my life, especially during quarantine. My family’s business has been severely impacted by the pandemic, and this scholarship allowed me to still pursue internships related in my field rather than taking part time jobs to help pay for my tuition. I am currently an intern for the D.C. Asian American Film Festival which has always been a dream of mine.
After graduation, I plan to find a job in marketing and social media in the D.C. area. I plan to save up for a few years before I move to LA.
