Scholarships & Grants

Since 2004, the Clark Center has awarded over $200,000 in performing arts scholarships and grants to students and teachers in the Lucia Mar Unified School District. Many of our past recipients have gone on to careers in the arts and achieved significant success as performers and technicians.

Expanding our resources for our scholarship and grant programs means that more individuals get the recognition they deserve and assistance they need to follow their dreams. We think that’s a great investment!
