Equity + Inclusion Scholarship

Laguna College of Art + Design promises real change!   On Friday, June 8, 2020, in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and in support of social justice, the LCAD community of Trustees, Administrative Leadership, and Faculty vowed to create the LCAD Equity + Inclusion Scholarship. This scholarship fund has been created to provide vital support to LCAD’s under-represented Black students. Through this Equity + Inclusion Scholarship, LCAD pledges to eradicate disparities in our student representation.  The College embraces the power of representation and recognizes the role that art plays in strengthening our community.

Donations designated to the LCAD Equity + Inclusion Scholarship help LCAD support our under-represented Black students regardless of their financial backgrounds. This LCAD Scholarship will be awarded to these under-represented students to ensure increased representation within the LCAD student body.  Secondary factors for recipients will be based on need and merit. The intent is for this scholarship to be a student’s gateway to a degree from LCAD and to a career in the creative arts. Scholarship support may take the form of one-time gifts, recurring annual contributions, or endowed funds. Scholarships are distributed in the academic year after they are received.  

Empower LCAD’s Black students to become the creative professionals of tomorrow!
