Senator DeFrancisco Young Artist Program

Senator John A. DeFrancisco Young Artist Program

The purpose of the program is to support young people in grades 7-12 in their artistic development by giving some financial assistance in Advanced or Ongoing Study or Summer Intensive Programs. Funding is to be used to further the education of young, gifted students who are already in training, and to benefit beginning students by increasing their exposure.

Students must demonstrate a definite talent in the area of arts and culture. There are two areas through which aspiring artists and their parents may apply, described in more detail below: Advanced or Ongoing Study and Summer Intensives. Students must be nominated by an arts teacher, guidance counselor, or the program that has accepted the student. Students must be currently enrolled in school in grades 7-12 (or will be in grade 7-12 when school resumes in the fall). Students must have a permanent residence within the 50th New York State Senate District. Students outside of the 50th District, unfortunately are NOT eligible.
