The Tom Joyner Foundation is committed to sharing all that is good about HBCUs. Art is a facet with a history that belongs to HBCUs and crosses all education and daily disciplines. There is creativity in all of us and this scholarship will encourage sculptures, paintings, drawings, and photography to be submitted. The program is open to all HBCU students attending a Tom Joyner Foundation supported school with no limitations on majors.
It is our goal to continue the legacy of the right to be creative and expressing one’s visual qualities.
