Apply now for Access Arts Scholarships
Last week, our community ambassadors delivered Access Arts information
packets to more than 200 Hillsborough County Schools! It was a big
project, but our goal is to get the word out about our Access Arts
scholarships at the Patel Conservatory in Tampa.
If you are interested in our summer camps and classes in dance, music and theater, and demonstrate financial need, here's some information about our Access Arts program...
What is Access Arts?
Access Arts provides scholarships to underserved children. With the help
of teachers and staff, children who are interested in the performing
arts are identified. Interested students complete an application and
interview. Qualified students receive scholarships to age-appropriate
classes and camps in dance, music and/or theater at the Patel
Conservatory at the Straz Center.
Who can apply?
Access Arts scholarships are available for deserving students and
families with demonstrated need who submit the required application and
necessary paperwork by the deadline.
When is the deadline?
Applications (and all other paperwork) for the Access Arts scholarships
are due by March 4, 2011.
Where do I get an application?
Applications are available at your school's guidance office, or you can
download it from our website.
For more information about the Access Arts program, or questions about
the application, please call Kristen Bracy at 813-222-6413.
