College Scholarship for Artists Offered

We've all heard the trope about the starving artist and, as the son of a freelance writer, I can tell you there is some truth to the axiom.

But sometimes art can pay, or at least help pay for school.

A $10,000 scholarship from the Greater Pottstown Foundation is being offered to help student artists pay for college.

The Greater Pottstown Foundation Scholarship for the Arts is designed to financially assist a qualified applicant in obtaining a degree from accredited academic institutions of higher learning for study in the arts. 

The program is open to any Pottstown, Pottsgrove, Hill School, or Owen J. Roberts High School senior who will be pursing an arts major or an arts minor in college.

The scholarship is awarded based on two criteria: artistic performance as displayed at the Greater Pottstown Foundation Scholarship Art Exhibit at ArtFusion 19464, and an essay on why the applicant wants to continue their education in the arts. 

 For complete details and rules of the competition, you can download an application by clicking here.

Applications and essays are due by Feb. 28. 

The artwork for the show does not need to be submitted until May 9.
