In October, the New York Community Trust named El Puente a recipient of the Edward & Sally Van Lier Arts Fellowship. The grant will fund three-year multidisciplinary fellowships for three El Puente youth artists. Each fellow will receive cash scholarships for professional training and mentoring in the arts.
The Van Lier Fund strives to create diverse and equitable access to the arts, and to develop the skills of talented young people in the arts.
