Rau for Art Foundation Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $7,000
Awards Available: 4

This year's RFA Scholarship Competition theme is Art Inspires Art:

Art is not created in a bubble - for centuries, artists have found inspiration in the work of their fellow musicians, poets, performers and writers. For our tenth annual competition, we ask you to create an original painting or drawing inspired by another non-graphic form of art. Celebrate the creativity of your fellow artists by conveying your experience of their music, words or movement through your own artistic creation.

Before submitting your work to the Competition, be sure to FULLY READ the qualifications below to be sure that you are eligible.


To qualify for participation in the Competition, you must meet the following Eligibility Requirements:

A) You must be a Sophomore, Junior or Senior in Orleans, Jefferson, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Tammany or St. Charles Parish (public, private or home-school equivalent)

B) You DO NOT have to be enrolled in an art class

C) Your entry must be your original work created during your high school career

D) You can only submit ONE work to the Competition, created ONLY by you

E) You must follow the Accepted Media requirements (see below)

F) Your entry must demonstrate adherence to the competition's theme


1st Place – $7,000
2nd Place – $3,000
3rd Place – $1,500
4th Place – $1,000

Only one entry is accepted per student, although there is no limit to the number of students allowed to participate from each high school.

Ten finalists will be selected. Once chosen, all finalists will be required to submit their physical work to a juried showing for continued consideration for the Scholarship.
