In an effort to assist young adults artists in the special needs community to achieve their artistic dreams, the Academy of Special Dreams offers a limited number of cash scholarships and grant awards to those participants who submit their artistic expressions in the competitions sponsored by the Special Academy.

The Working Artists Grant is focused on the disabled adult artist who actively pursues a career or vocation in any artistic field and who occasionally requires financial support to further that career or vocation.

Congratulations students at LIFT NORTH AND LIFT SOUTH for all your hard work.  This Grants Award were possible by the STAPLES FOUNDATION.  The Staples Foundation is committed to enhancing educational and job skills opportunities in the local communities where our associates and customers live and work.
