The Acadia Community Theater Board of Directors is proud to announce that we will be awarding two scholarships this spring. The winners will be announced during the second weekend of our production of Shrek, The Musical.
A $500, one-time scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior to pursue further education in the performing arts. It may be used for college study in a performing arts major, to help finance a performing arts-related internship, or to fund other special projects related to performing arts education.
A $200, one-time scholarship will be awarded to a younger student to pursue performing arts education. The scholarship may be used to pay for private lessons, for tuition at a camp that specializes in the performing arts, or for the purchase of performing arts related equipment and supplies.
Selection for both awards will be made by the ACT Board of Directors. Preference is given to candidates who have participated in at least one Acadia Community Theater production.
"We have had great success with our programs the last few years and see an opportunity to help young people in our community take their love of performing arts to the next level," said ACT Board President Keri Hayes. "This is something that we hope will become an annual award and, with luck, may expand to help even more kids in the future."
Please return scholarship forms to an ACT board member, email to email@example.com, or mail to ACT, PO Box 301, Mount Desert, ME 04660. Applications are due (postmarked) by the date indicated on the form
