The St. Charles County Arts Council co-sponsors $500 scholarships for high school seniors who show that they plan to incorporate the arts into their lives after high school. Candidates must live or attend high school in St. Charles County and continue a full-time education (12 hours or more) whether or not pursuing an arts-related degree. Scholarship funds may be used for tuition, room and board, or books.
These scholarship funds can be in Broadcast Journalism, Electronic Journalism, Print Journalism, Dance, Theatre, Vocal Music, Instrumental Music, or Visual Arts. Applications must be postmarked by March 31, 2015 and include a completed application form, high school transcript, written teacher recommendation, and a 300-400 word, typed essay titled “How the Arts Impact My Life and Future Plans."
If you would like to help sponsor a scholarship for a young person who has demonstrated a passion for the arts, please contact the Arts Office at 636-561-0028. Sponsorship can be from a business or individual.
