SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION

The Poze Bazaar Foundation began with a mission to foster and serve the youth in our communities near and far. We believe that passion, skill, and dedication - not financial circumstances - should drive community access to the arts.

 

From workshops and lecture series to youth scholarship programs and exhibition opportunities, we continuously seek new ways to educate and inspire children and youth alike – while providing opportunities and outreach for those in need.
