ART SCHOLARSHIP GUIDELINES
ART SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION
The Worcester County Arts Council's scholarship program is designed to identify, recognize and encourage talented students who demonstrate excellence in Dance, Music, Theater, Visual Arts and Creative Writing.
Last year, four talented Worcester County students have been each awarded art scholarship from the Worcester County Arts Council in support of their artistic goals.
Emily Cook and Elle Bargar, both graduating Stephen Decatur High School seniors, and Fiona O’Brien - an art major student at Radford University as well as previous recipient of Art Scholarship from the Arts Council, have been each awarded a $1,000.
A $2,000 Scholarship award for Taylor Zarif, Worcester Preparatory School senior, was made possible by a generous contribution provided by John Sisson and his Family in memory of John Carroll Sisson III.
The Arts Council is very appreciative for their continuous support of our Art Scholarship program!
