The Julian Foundation is a California Non-Profit 501(c)(3) group formed to honor the life of our friend, Julian Collender. We seek to achieve positive social change by supporting the pursuit of education, artistic endeavors and creative self-expression so that Julian’s passions will continue to thrive.
Rather than merely emphasizing GPA’s and test scores, we value interesting stories, alternative ideas, and passionate drives. Our academic scholarships are awarded to select applicants in a traditional college or university program.
Sometimes you just need some additional resources to make your idea a reality. Whether it's starting a record label or filming a skate part. Individuals can submit their proposals throughout the year for grants and other assistance.
We help individuals create any form of printed publication from small scale self-published magazines to limited edition vinyls to anything your heart can dream of. There’s something refreshing about analog in our digital-obsessed world.
Our 2017 Scholarship program is currently now accepting applications. Please review the full evaluation criteria and instructions before completing your application. We also accept applications for our Project Grants all year round.
East of Eden or Adventures in Wonderland? The Sun Also Rises or Night? No Logo or Cometbus? Everybody has a story tell and stories are eternal. But we’re also fans of a solid Haiku. Just sayin.
Music was the driving force of Jules’ life. His enjoyment of music spanned from the dirtiest of hip hop to the gnarliest of metal. We want to see his love for music thrive.
Maybe you got a shop sponsor, you're flow trash, or you're a dope videographer working on the next Fully Flared. We can help you figure out what to do with your Bar Mitzvah money. What?!
Jules was once told that he was the next Scorcese…pretty cool. Kurosawa? Trier? Cassavetes? Any of these names ring a bell or make your heart skip? Us too!
Painters, designers, photographers, stylists, typographers, collagers, or whatever you’re into! Let’s turn your vision into a reality.
Our academic scholarships are for those kids with a story to tell—students that want to challenge and infuriate the past, to provoke the new, to inspire, and create something raw and amazing.
Your support goes directly to funding our academic scholarship, independent project fund, workshops, and zines. Please feel free to contact us and find out how you can donate or volunteer. Thank you for your contributions!
