Summer Arts Scholarships

We’re excited to resume our Summer Arts Scholarship programs this year!  We awarded $4,000 to sixteen students from northwest Ohio as part of our 2019 Summer Arts Scholarships program. Recipients were honored at a June 3 awards ceremony at Shalom Counseling and Mediation Center in Archbold.  Students attended music, theatre, dance, fine arts, media production, figure skating and woodworking at camps in Ohio and other states.

The BSAC Summer Arts Scholarship program was created to provide financial assistance for students entering grades 7-12 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 nearly 300 students.
