WCAC Art Scholarship Program
Six talented local students have been each awarded $1000 art scholarships from the Worcester County Arts Council in support of their artistic goals: Sara Prengaman, Isabella Iampieri (Stephen Decatur High School graduates), Taylor Burkhead, Prudence Goddard, and Torres Savage (Snow Hill High School graduates), and Regan Kyger, former scholarship recipient, currently enrolled in art major in college. Scholarship awards were possible by a generous grant from the Mary Humphreys Foundation, by a donation from Mrs. Nancie Beste and her family, in memory of her husband, William Beste, and contributions from many patrons of the Arts Council.
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.
| The Arts Council will award art scholarships of $1000.00 each during the 2013-2014 school year, to qualified students interested in pursuing academic careers in the arts.
This is a merit scholarship and award decisions are based on evaluation of talent, dedication and potential, not financial need.
APPLICATIONS DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 2014, 2 pm.. Applications must be recieved at the Worcester County Arts Council, 6 Jefferson Street, Berlin, Maryland.
Graduating seniors, who will major in the visual, performing, music or media arts, are encouraged to apply.
