Welcome to the Santa Barbara Performing Arts Scholarship Foundation website.

The Performing Arts Scholarship Foundation (PASF) is dedicated to assisting young artists a they continue their musical studies. Each year PASF offers scholarships to deserving applicants who must submit an application prior to being selected to audition and then participate in a competition with their peers. The competition is open to Santa Barbara residents or those studying with a Santa Barbara County music teacher. Some of our past winners are now doing well in the performing arts all around the world, and we are proud to have had a part in their success.
