Scholarship Type


The Performing Arts Scholarship is for students from Sarasota and Manatee Counties who plan to participate in a distinct educational program focused on preparation for a professional career in the performing arts.

Applicants will be judged on demonstrated performance ability, commitment to a professional career, objectives and qualifications of the program, as well as financial need. Students must have a reasonable GPA to be awarded this scholarship.
