Applications for SAAC's annual Summer Scholarships program are now open! Awards are available to students between ages 11 and 18 for extracurricular youth development programs in art and art education. Any art discipline is eligible (performing arts, music, applied arts, visual arts, creative writing, etc.). Funds may be used for summer lessons, camps, auditions, and more! Applications are due April 15, 2021.
Awards are based on a combination of need and merit for who live in Oktibbeha County currently attending public, private, or home schools. Over the past decade, more than $40,000 has been awarded to support youth attending programs at organizations like MSU Summer Scholars OnStage, Mississippi Lions Band, Controllers 4-H Club, American Ballet Theatre, Southeastern Summer Theatre Institute, and more. Sponsorships are available, so please let us know if you or your business wants to help expand these opportunities!
Rules and Applications are online at www.starkvillearts.net/artseducation. Students must be residents of Oktibbeha County, between ages 11 and 18, and currently attending public, private, or home schools. Both merit and need are considered. Students are not eligible once officially enrolled in college. Awards are paid directly to the agency / vendor, so applicants must also identify a specific program in advance of submitting an application.
