Bainbridge nonprofit offers new scholarship
April 21, 2012 · 11:24 AM
Bainbridge Arts and Crafts has started a new scholarship for graduating high school seniors, the Sissel Feroy Scholarship.
Feroy retired last year after teaching art for 37 years in the Bainbridge School District, both at the middle school and high school level.
In addition to the $1,000 Sissel Feroy Scholarship, Bainbridge Arts and Crafts offers the $2,000 Pauli Family Scholarship and the $1,000 Rosalyn Gale Powell Scholarship. Scholarships are awarded to students who plan to continue to study art. Recipients are selected by professional artists from the community.
All scholarship applications must be received by Bainbridge Arts and Crafts by 6 p.m. Friday, April 27.
More scholarship information and applications are available at www.bacart.org/education.html.
A nonprofit organization founded in 1948, Bainbridge Arts and Crafts encourages the creation and appreciation of fine contemporary art and craft by exhibiting and selling the work of Northwest artists, and by offering art education to a county-wide audience of all ages.
