Les amis des Beaux-Arts de Paris

The main actions carried out each year by the Friends association :

Prizes: 6 prizes awarded to support the work of 3rd and 5th year students: agnès b, Thaddaeus Ropac, Bertrand de Demandolx, Weil Gosthal et Manges, Khalil de Chazournes, Friends' prize chosen by the members.

Scholarships: 6 scholarships, 4 awarded to support and accompany young graduates after they leave the School (during their first 5 years) and 2 Dujarric de la Rivière scholarships to two students from the Via Ferrata preparatory class who entered the Beaux-Arts de Paris in their first year.

The awards ceremony takes place in June and the scholarships in December, during the traditional end-of-year party which allows the association to raise funds and recruit members to support its actions.
All of the prizewinners benefit from a collective exhibition in the Chapelle des Beaux-Arts in June, during the Open Workshops.

Production grants: the association's office receives applications from students and graduates online throughout the year and awards 4 to 6 grants for collective or individual projects.

The amount of the prizes and grants is €5,000, the production grants can be up to €3,000.

Entry into the collection: In 2022, the Friends have decided to select an artist every year from among the twenty or so who have graduated with honours and to buy a work from him or her to add to the school's collection, after consulting its acquisition committee.

Solidarity actions for the students of the School: since 2020, the association has been contributing to the emergency aid fund of the Beaux-Arts de Paris for students facing serious financial difficulties. Since 2022, it has supported the Herodote programme, which welcomes art students from countries in a state of war.
