John E. Profant Foundation Offers Aid for Santa Barbara Artists

It’s a tough row to hoe as an artist, which is why the John E. Profant Foundation for the Arts offers scholarships to folks pursuing creative passions. Each year the nonprofit, which was formed in 1994 with the goal of “preserving Santa Barbara’s cultural heritage,” gives several monetary stipends in one of the following categories: music, dance, art, drama, and literature. This year, dance is being honored with aid ranging from $500-$2,000. Applicants must be residents of Santa Barbara County, and applications must be postmarked by April 30. For more details, call (805) 681-8284, email, or visit
