The Joci Awards

Now celebrating its 15th year, the Las Casas Foundation Performing Arts Scholarship Program offers numerous educational opportunities, including workshops, master classes and a preliminary audition process.

The program culminates in the Joci Awards, a one-night showcase of 25 performing arts high school students from San Antonio and South Texas, all of whom are guaranteed scholarships to pursue higher education. Since its inception in 2009, Las Casas has awarded over $1.3 million, maintaining its designation as the largest scholarship funding source of its kind in the United States.
