The following was submitted by the Marblehead Festival of Arts:
Among the many activities and events sponsored by The Marblehead Festival of Arts (MFoA) over the course of the year, the Festival is particularly proud to support our community by awarding a scholarship to a deserving student who resides or attends school in Marblehead. The Scholarship Committee is now accepting applications for the Art Scholarship Award.
This $3,000 prize is presented to a deserving high school senior pursuing higher education in visual or performing arts, crafts or music. The objective in awarding this scholarship is to encourage the graduating senior interested in pursuing the arts professionally to acquire a sound academic grounding in his or her field of choice.
The MFoA Scholarship Committee co-chairs Ron and Janet Lamkin, along with committee members Herb Goldberg, Mike Evers, Victoria French and Lynne DeVoe, define the criteria in selecting a winning candidate as follows: financial need, general academics, art achievements, arts-related and other activities both within school as well as the community, honors and special citations received, and a students intended vocation.
Applications are available at Marblehead High School and online at www.MarbleheadFestival.org. Information about the Scholarship is available on the Web site or by contacting artscholarship@MarbleheadFestival.org. The application deadline is April 9, 2014.
The Festival also offers the Milton Bloom Student Art Scholarship, open to students in grades 7 through 11 who reside or attend school in Marblehead. Selection is based on artistic talent, accomplishments and motivation. Information and applications are available on the Festival Web site.
