Welcome to SNPAA
The Sierra Nevada Performing Arts Association (SNPAA) was established as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to support performing arts schools in Northern Nevada and to provide scholarships to local talented students by sponsoring cultural events in our community.
We are dedicated to improving our community by uniting those with a deep passion for the arts and a love of the Northern Nevada area. Our goal is to increase the awareness of Nevada as a national musical venue but also to bolster the educational aspirations of our community’s young performers through scholarships and other support. We are a non-political association.
Application for Scholarship entry
To be eligible, the applicant must be in the last semester or have graduated from a high school in Northern Nevada. The intent of our Scholarships is to recognize hard work and to assist students with completion of higher education.
