Building on its Adobe Youth Voices signature philanthropy program, the Adobe Foundation has established a $1M scholarship fund to empower youth worldwide to pursue creative careers or find innovative ways to improve their communities.
The Adobe Foundation Creativity Scholarships will focus on youth who are participating in the Adobe Youth Voices program through its network of strategic partners and plan to pursue an academic program or career in a creative field at an accredited college, university or certification program. Scholarships will be based on financial need and academic performance and potential. Individual scholarship amounts and lengths will vary based on country, type of curriculum as well as other factors.
The Adobe Foundation first announced its commitment to establish the Adobe Foundation Creativity scholarships in April 2012 (see separate release) in response to a global study that showed most people are not living up to their own creative potential (see separate release).
