As students and parents search for various scholarships that can help fund college education, there are two scholarships at Sauk Valley Community College that may interest fine arts majors.
Students planning to attend (or already attend) SVCC full-time and major in theatre/performing arts or speech/communication can apply for the Jerry Weston Mathis Memorial award while students majoring in music can apply for the Dorothy K. Engel Music award.
The purpose of these awards is to recognize fine arts students with outstanding talent and experience. Students are also encouraged to pursue the development of their talents through continued study in their chosen fine arts field at SVCC.
Interested high school students can see their high school counseling office for applications. Current SVCC students can contact the Sauk Valley College Foundation Office at 815-835-6345.
