Stanly Arts Guild reveals scholarship opportunities

The Stanly Arts Guild has announced the offer of two art $1,000 scholarships to be awarded in June.

Winners will be announced at the June meeting of the Guild.

A second scholarship is The Stanly Arts Guild Scholarship, awarded to a high school senior planning to enroll, or a college freshman enrolled, in a visual arts or arts education program. The student must be a resident of Stanly or adjoining county (Anson, Cabarrus, Montgomery, Rowan or Union). A total of $1,000 will be paid directly to the college in attendance of the scholarship winner.
