Last year, the Pinewood Players initiated a scholarship program designed to assist students who want to attend a college or university and study some form of theater arts. Up to two scholarships of $2,000 each are being offered.
Scholarship awards are intended to aid students who have a close connection to Munds Park, maintain a high grade average, and demonstrate leadership qualities. Young people who have participated in the Pinewood Drama Camps are encouraged to apply. The expectation is that a scholarship recipient will pursue at least a minor in a theatre field such as acting, directing, music, dance, or technical fields such as lighting, sound, scene design and/or performing arts education. They must enroll full time and participate in some way in college productions. Recipients may attend any accredited two or four year college or university without regard to location.
Applications are now being accepted. The application form can be found and printed by clicking on Scholarship under the Drama Camp menu item on our website. Applications are due by May 15. They are also available by contacting Rich Dahl at PO Box 18484, Munds Park, AZ 86017.
Last years’ recipients were Claire Haller and Mandy Tomkins. Both had previously attended Drama Camp and are now in their first year of college level study. Decisions regarding recipients or our scholarships are made by the PWP Scholarship Committee and Board of Directors.
