The Charles County Arts Alliance sponsors a $1500 scholarship, awarded to one highly-qualified and talented graduate from each of Charles County’s seven public high schools and St. Mary’s Ryken High School pursuing an arts-related major at a four-year college or university.  It is a competitive program; applicants must submit:

  • A 300-word essay that includes the name of the college or university the applicant plans to attend, the intended arts major, and an explanation of why the particular arts degree is being pursued.
  • Two (2) letters of recommendation – one from a teacher familiar with the applicant’s artistic achievements, and one from a teacher familiar with the applicant’s academic achievements.
  •  An official transcript verifying a Grade Point Average of 3.0 or higher.
  • An audition tape or portfolio, depending on the applicant’s artistic discipline.

The program for 2021 is now open.
