The Buck Hill Art Association Scholarship – Scholarships for Art
The Buck Hill Art Association offers two types of scholarships each year: The Buck Hill Art Association Scholarship goes to one or two students who are Seniors at local high schools, and who are going on to schools of higher education in the arts. This may include fine art, drama, poetry, music, dance, and film.Applications are available at the local high schools.
The Jenkins Art Scholarship goes to an employee of the Buck Hill Falls Company, a family member of an employee, or a Buck Hill community member who is interested in studying the arts. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, and the award may be given to the same individual up to three times. The award may be split between recipients but will equal the total sum of $1,000.
Applications for the Jenkins Art Scholarship are available at the Buck Hill Falls Company office or by clicking here (need this application!). The application deadline is August 5, 2017.
All applicants need to fill out an application stating what class he/she will be taking and to explain why he/she wishes to take it. The class does not need to be at an institute of higher learning, but the scholarships are for students who are graduating from high school or continuing in their post-high school studies.
