2018 College Scholarship Applications Now Available!
Pinewood Players is very happy to announce that the applications are now available online for the Pinewood Players Scholarship Program which was initiated in 2015. The program was established to assist students who have plans to attend a college or university and study some form of theatre arts. April 16, 2018 is the deadline for the submission of this year’s scholarship application. Once again, a scholarship of $2000.00 will be awarded to this year’s honoree. The scholarship is intended to aid a student who has a close connection to Munds Park. Additionally, the applicant must be a high school senior or graduate, maintain a high grade average and demonstrate leadership qualities. Young people who have participated in the Pinewood Players Drama Camps are encouraged to apply. The expectation for consideration is that the recipient will pursue a major or minor in a field related to theatre. The many areas of participation include performance in or the teaching of acting, directing, music and dance. Additionally, the technical fields of lighting, sound and scenic design qualify. The participant must be a full time student in an accredited two or four year college or university. The geographical location of the institution is not a factor in selection. The recipient is expected to participate in some way in college productions.
Applications are being accepted between March 2, 2018 and April 16, 2018. Completed applications must be postmarked within that time frame. The 2018 application form can be downloaded in the FORMS section on the pinewoodplayers.com website. They are also available by contacting Nancy Del Duca at 5903 East Orange Blossom Lane, Phoenix, Az. 85018.
2017 recipients Sophia Drapeau (NYU) and Kirsten Ryder (NAU) and 2016 recipients Claire Haller and Mandy Tomkins are actively pursuing their college education with the benefit of the $2000.00 awards given through the Scholarship Program. We look forward to the continuation of the program through the awarding of another $2000.00 to a deserving student. The Pinewood Players Scholarship Committee and Board of Directors look forward to the announcement in early May of this year’s scholarship recipient.
