Scholarship Information and Requirements


The Pavilion Partners is the volunteer organization of The Center for the Performing Arts at The Woodlands. Partners provides financial support for The Pavilion’s educational outreach programs to nurture the classical performing arts in the regional community.

The Pavilion Partners Fine Arts Scholarships are merit-based on talent and academic performance. The values of the scholarships are determined by the current availability of funds. Recently, these first-year scholarships have ranged from $2500 to $7500. Amounts awarded are determined at the discretion of the Pavilion Partners Scholarship Committee.

Eligibility for Fine Arts Scholarships

Graduating seniors who intend to major in the fine arts and who reside within the boundaries set by the scholarship committee are eligible to apply for the scholarships. The application process is only an online process through the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion site. They may attend public school, private school, homeschool, or an online school.

  • Boundaries are Northwest Houston school districts: Aldine ISD, Conroe ISD, Klein ISD, Magnolia ISD, Montgomery ISD, New Caney ISD, Spring ISD, Splendora ISD, Tomball ISD, and Willis ISD.
  • Students who attend accredited online schools operated by school districts not listed are eligible only if they reside within the boundaries set by the Scholarship Committee.
  • Scholarships are for students who intend to pursue a degree within a fine art major, not a degree with a fine art as a “minor.”
  • Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or eligible resident.
