Scholarship Letters to your Arts Area Director—AWARDS CEREMONY

If you have been awarded an academic or organizational scholarship, please turn in a copy of the scholar-
ship letter to your Arts Area Director. Please include ALL of the scholarships that you have received even
if you aren’t going to accept the scholarship or be attending the particular school that has offered you the
funding.
We need this information by graduation, but if you are interested in being named in the program for
the Awards Ceremony, then the Arts Area Directors needs your letter by May 4th, 2018.
