Helping Students Achieve More

Through our inaugural program, $219,000 worth of Thea scholarships are awarded to students in five different categories: performing arts, visual arts, creative writing, film making, and fashion design annually. Winners are selected based solely on talent, never on test scores, GPAs or intent to major in the arts. That means that whether a student wants to be a ballet dancer or a biochemist, their Thea scholarship is applicable and will travel to the higher learning institute of their choice. And, if a student chooses to attend one of our educational partner schools, their scholarship value could double based on the school’s matching program. 

Celebrate the 2023/2024 Scholarship Winners

Thea Foundation is excited to announce the winners of the 2022/2023 scholarship competition. Inspired by the theme “Individual, and beautiful” 332 students from across Arkansas applied for a chance at part of the $219,000 worth of scholarships.
