Art scholarships offered by Wor. Co. Arts Council

(March 12, 2015) Worcester County Arts Council’s Student Scholarship award program is under way.  The Arts Council is offering multiple $1,000 art scholarships to graduating high school seniors, who are Worcester County residents interested in pursuing academic careers in the arts.
Scholarships are also available to college art majors wishing to continue their education in the arts. Last year, six local students were each awarded $1,000 art scholarships from the Worcester County Arts Council in support of their artistic goals.
This is a merit scholarship and award decisions are based on evaluation of talent, dedication and potential, not financial need. The winners will be awarded at their respective high school’s senior awards ceremonies.
Applications must be received by Friday, March 13 at the Worcester County Arts Council, located at 6 Jefferson Street in Berlin. Applicants are judged on their visual, dramatic, creative writing or musical presentations in the form of DVD or CD.
Applications and scholarship guidelines are available at the Worcester County high schools through the guidance offices and are also available at the Arts Council’s office and online at Call 410-641-0809 for more information.
