Building on its Adobe Youth Voices signature philanthropy program, the Adobe Foundation is establishing scholarships 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 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 will hold its first application cycle in Spring 2013 with awards totaling $1 million being distributed for the start of the academic year beginning in Fall 2013. Additional details about the application process will be announced later this year.
