Since 1982, Paint Creek Center for the Arts supported aspiring young artists through a college scholarship program that was open to graduating high school seniors attending Rochester Community Schools. Knowing the importance of a quality art education, our scholarships helped students with the ever-rising cost of tuition. Applicants must have planned to attend an accredited college majoring in a visual arts program and provide a letter of acceptance with their submission.
One (1) $2000 scholarship was awarded which could be applied towards tuition and expenses in the following Fall term the student intended to attend college. Award winners were selected after a competitive review of digital images and support materials.
The scholarship was 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.
