Each year the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts awards scholarships to high school seniors and college students who will be majoring in an area of the arts. Since 2007 the non-profit organization has been awarding scholarships to local students who plan to major in visual arts, literary arts or performing arts. With the cost of a higher education beyond high school continuing to rise each year, The Foundation for the Arts awards scholarships to help local students pursue their dreams in the arts. Students living on Marco Island, the Isle of Capri and Goodland or attending school on Marco Island are eligible and encouraged to apply.
We are looking for hard working high school seniors and college students who plan to major in music, photography, art, movie making, the theater or dance. The scholarship application offered by the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts can be found on their website, www.marcoarts.org. Applications are also available on the Collier County Schools list of available scholarships. Completed applications must be returned no later than April 30th for the student to be considered for a scholarship. Students and their parents are welcome to call Carolyn Burger for more information at 239-389-0280.
A special luncheon to honor students and award scholarships will be held by the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts on Saturday, May 27th. Watch for more information as details become available.
