Summer Arts Scholarships

We’re excited to offer our annual Summer Arts Scholarship again this year!  In 2022, we awarded scholarships to eleven students from Defiance, Fulton, Henry and Williams counties.  They attended fine arts camps in Ohio and neighboring states.

The BSAC Summer Arts Scholarship program was created to provide financial assistance for students entering grades 8-12 to receive enrichment and return to school in the fall with greater proficiency, and become leaders in their chosen areas. Several former scholarship recipients are currently teachers and staff members in area arts education programs.

Since our summer arts program began in 2002, we’ve awarded scholarships to more than 300 students.
