“We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.” ― Arthur O’Shaughnessy

Wilshire Quinn
Musical Arts Scholarship

At Wilshire Quinn Capital, music runs through our veins. From the time we were kids, many of our most pivotal life moments can be traced back to certain songs and musical notes. And even though we grew up to be suit-wearing finance guys, we are still rock stars at heart. That’s why we created the Wilshire Quinn Musical Arts Scholarship – a $10,000 award that will be given to one qualified applicant of our choosing.

We’re looking for candidates who demonstrate passion, talent, work ethic and financial hardship. Whether you play the flute, pick an electric guitar or sing Puccini, we want to celebrate and support you as you pursue your dreams. You are the future soundtrack of America. Rock on!

One scholarship of $10,000 will be awarded. Funds will be used for tuition only and paid directly to the educational institution.
