What started with a simple wish to begin a scholarship in Ian's memory grew into much more than we could have anticipated. In addition to the $1,000 art scholarship offered to local area high school seniors each Spring, we also award a $1,000 art grant through the Santa Maria Art Council Grant Showcase each May.
In order to have more control over the scholarship and grant, it was necessary to form the Ian M Hassett Foundation. The Foundation was officially recognized by the state of California on June 12, 2013 (almost one year after Ian died).
