College Scholarships

2016 Scholarship Recipients

$2,000 College Scholarship (open to high school graduating seniors).

Since 1982, Paint Creek Center for the Arts has been nurturing aspiring young artists through its college scholarship program open to graduating high school seniors attending Rochester Community Schools.  We know the importance of a quality art education and our scholarships help students with the ever-rising cost of tuition. Applicants must be planning to attend an accredited college majoring in a visual arts program and provide a letter of acceptance with their submission.

One (1) $2000 scholarship will be awarded which can be applied towards tuition and expenses in the Fall of 2017 to attend college. Award winners will be selected after a competitive review of digital images and support materials.

The scholarship is made possible through donations to the Mary McCarthy Anderson Scholarship Fund.  This scholarship fund pays tribute to Mary McCarthy Anderson who was an attorney, an accomplished artist, devoted member of the Sisters of the Brush and a longtime student at Paint Creek Center for the Arts.
