Legendary actor Robin Williams once said that “by being entertaining, you make a connection with another person.”
The performing arts thrive on evoking feelings and making these connections with an audience. Performers have the power to conjure laughter, smiles, tears, shock, suspense, and so much more. Through performance, people can express themselves in unique ways. To support the future of the performing arts, the Studio Fine Arts Scholarship will support high school seniors and undergraduate students from Illinois who plan to continue on in their artistic education in the future. Those planning to pursue majors in the arts, such as music, theater, dance, etc. are eligible to apply.
In your application, write about an artist that influenced you and how their direction has led you to where you are now. Also, talk a little bit about your favorite experience so far that you’ve had in the arts.
