Scholarships are also available to college art majors wishing to continue their education in the arts. Applicants are judged on their visual, dramatic, writing, or musical presentations in the form of DVD, CD, or power point recordings.

The Worcester County Arts Council provides awards that range in the amounts from $500 to $2000 to qualifying Worcester County students.
The number and amount of the award are determined by the quality and artistic merit of the application and are based on the funds availability.

In May of 2017, four talented Worcester County students have been each awarded art scholarship from the Worcester County Arts Council.

Madeline Goddard, art therapy major at West Virginia University and Rebeka Kline, Pocomoke High School graduate, have each received $1,000 in support of their artistic goals.
Jordan Riddleberger, Snow Hill High School graduate has been awarded $1,000 scholarship in memory of Janet R.S. Paper provided by John Sisson’s Family.
A $1,500 scholarship award for Reeves Dark, Salisbury University fine art student was made possible by donations in memory of former president of the Arts Council, James Falcon.

Worcester County Arts Council scholarship is a merit scholarship and award decisions are based on evaluation of talent, dedication and potential, not financial need.
