Did you know nearly 600 Pavilion Partners Fine Arts Scholarships have been awarded to high school and college students since the inception of the program in 1999? And more than $645,000 in scholarships has been awarded?
In 2012, Partners awarded 31 renewal scholarships and 25 new scholarships totaling more than $60,000. Out of those 56 scholarships, students attended 17 different colleges and universities in the United States, nine different high schools in five different ISD’s including one private school.
Every year, The Pavilion Partners offers fine arts scholarships to graduating high school seniors planning to major in the arts, as well as renewal scholarships to past recipients currently studying the arts in college. Based on talent and academic performance, fine arts scholarships are awarded to students in the categories of vocal and instrumental music, theatre arts, dance and visual 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.
Information about The Pavilion Partners Fine Arts Scholarship Program has been distributed at schools in eight eligible districts including Conroe ISD, Spring ISD, Klein ISD, Magnolia ISD, Montgomery ISD, Tomball ISD, Willis ISD, MacArthur and Carver High Schools in Aldine ISD and private schools within each district’s boundaries.
