Scholarship


It has been said that every child is an artist. While academic success is certainly something to which all students should aspire, we also believe in the inherent creativity and artistry that is unique to every student, whether it is through music, acting, writing, painting, whatever that one of a kind skill set may be.

Imagination has been the driving force behind problems solved since man first showed up, and that innovation has contributed to the growth and advancement of our society for millennia, and is the fusion of both technical prowess and our hopes for a better society.
