How can you help?
You can promote The Pavilion Partners Fine Arts Scholarship Program by volunteering for the committee. Volunteers are needed to promote the programs in schools, review applications and help with the selection of recipients. More than $645,000 has been awarded to students who study music, voice, theatre, dance, visual arts and graphic arts.
New this year, a portion of the funds raised from the 2014 gala benefit the Partners Fine Arts Scholarships. The Pavilion will allocate $75,000 over a three year period to graduating high school seniors. The top scoring applicants in each of the five disciplines receive a $5,000 scholarship. The next six highest scoring applicants across all disciplines receive a $2,500 scholarship. The remaining nine applicants receive a $1,500 scholarship. Students who have received a scholarship are eligible to receive a $1,000 renewal scholarship.
You also can donate towards a $1,000 donor-named scholarship. The scholarship can be named after a person of your choosing. For more information about the donor-named scholarships, email Leslie Williams.
The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion acknowledges the financial support of The Woodlands Township that is generated by the Event Admissions Tax for its performing arts and educational programs.
