The purpose of the Spirit Square Center for Arts and Education Scholarship Fund is to provide scholarships to undergraduate students with demonstrated aptitude and career potential in the arts. Applicants for the scholarship must have demonstrated talent and a declared major that indicate potential for a significant career contribution to the arts and must be a rising college junior or senior in good academic standing with his or her institution. Dollar amounts will vary.
The Scholarship Committee will consider the following when selecting recipients: academic performance, giving preference to students who have earned a 3.0 GPA; school and community involvement and personal achievements; and commitment to and demonstrated potential for a career in the arts. Preference will be given to students who are legal residents of Mecklenburg or contiguous counties in North or South Carolina and attend colleges and universities in North Carolina.
