Ayuda for the Arts
AYUDA for the Arts is an alliance dedicated to helping students with a financial need, pursue their education in art related fields.
We offer undergraduate scholarships and mentorship to advance their studies in their chosen field of the arts.
In early 2001, as founders of AYUDA for the Arts, we saw the need of the many talented, creative young NY Metropolitan area students who, due to limited financial opportunities, were unable to further their studies into college programs for design and the arts.
We saw that, while there are a number of organizations that provide some financial assistance to the design and arts, they are dedicated to a specific field or ethnic sector. We decided to specifically develop AYUDA for the Arts to stand apart in that it recognizes all fields of design and the arts and all cultural backgrounds. (While "AYUDA" is the Spanish word for "help", they are a multi-cultural organization.)
Examples of the Potential Categories for Scholarships include, but are not limited to:
- Design - Fashion, Interior, Jewelry, Advertising, Illustration, Theatrical Set, etc.
- Arts - Graphic Arts, Music, Painting, Literature, Sculpture, Theatre, Dance and other Performance Arts, Culinary Arts, etc.
In addition, we try to introduce the students to successful individuals in their chosen field of study; mentors, to give the student an experienced insight and guidance with respect to the fields they have chosen.
AYUDA for the Arts is a fully volunteer organization with no salaried staff. It raises funds for its scholarships and programs through grants, appeals, private donations and fundraising events.

Throughout time, societies have been judged and remembered by the contributions they have made to the various arts of their era. The hope of AYUDA for the Arts is to give today’s youth, who have the seed of artistic talent, the resources and nourishment they need to grow their talents to the fullest potential and to eventually leave us with their creative contributions, which will earmark our society for tomorrow.
