Mentoring The Next Generation of Graffiti Artists
*UPDATE: 3/22/2020 – Due to the current global health crisis, our Scholarship program has been postponed to 2021. If you have already applied, we will be contacting you as soon as the program resumes.
At Klughaus, our mission is to expand the possibilities of graffiti — both as an artform and as a career path for individual artists. Given it’s a generational craft, we deeply believe that graffiti’s evolution depends on the next generation to thrive.
The 2020 Graffiti USA Scholarship continues our commitment to the graffiti community. This year, we are awarding a $2,500 scholarship to one passionate student enrolled in (or intending to pursue) either a fine arts or business degree.
Open to national applicants, we’re seeking hard working and talented artists, with excellent academic records, who are passionate about graffiti, street art and murals. Our team will also review the candidate’s art portfolio, lettering and spray paint skills (if applicable). We will then select one applicant to receive financial support towards continuing their education in the arts, along with mentorship to transform their artistry into a lifelong career.
Past Scholarship Winner! (2019)
We were proud and excited to announce our first $2,500 scholarship award to a very talented graffiti artist, TREMS! We respect the privacy of all of the artists that applied. As a result, legal names, faces and locations will not be shared upon artist request. We couldn’t be more excited to grant this award to TREMS based on his academic and artist talents.
Note: The 2019 scholarship program finalists were selected and administered by a non-bias & equal opportunity third party, Scholarship America.
