2020 ARTS FOR LIFE SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION

ARTS FOR LIFE (AFL) is a not-for-profit arts organization based in the Metro St. Louis area dedicated to the healing power of the arts through its work with children, the underserved and the community. In service to the public, AFL salutes and supports non-professional theater and the arts in the Metro St. Louis area, and it is through this collaboration of the arts and service that the AFL mission is realized and our community rewarded.
