The purpose of the Scripps Fine Arts Foundation is to stimulate public interest in art, to develop greater opportunities for the study of art at Scripps College and to benefit the local art community. Membership is open to anyone in sympathy with its purpose.
The Fine Arts Foundation raises funds from annual membership dues as well as donations and benefit events to support monthly programs, the Scripps Art Conservation program, Scripps student internships and cash awards to senior art students. The Scripps Fine Arts Foundation Memorial Fund and the Albert Stewart Scholarship Fund provide around $50,000 a year for worthy scholarship students. The Millard Sheets Art Internship Fund supports current students undertaking a summer internship with an arts or cultural organization. The Scripps Fine Arts Foundation is a public, non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
