Patricia A. Curley was a beloved aunt who was passionate about the arts and created an artistic legacy in her family.

Patricia was a generous and enthusiastic supporter of the arts. She initiated an annual family talent show, which is still going strong 15 years later. An accountant by trade, she started taking piano lessons in her mid-thirties and started her first novel in her early fifties. Patricia imparted her love of art and culture to all who surrounded her. Sadly, she passed away in her early sixties before her creative dreams were fully realized. Aside from her love and support of the arts, her most distinguishing character trait was her financial generosity. 

This scholarship aims to honor the memory of Patricia A. Curley by supporting students who are involved in the arts.

Any undergraduate student with financial need who is involved in the arts may apply for this scholarship, but non-traditional students and those interested in accounting/finance are preferred.

To apply, tell us about your passion for the arts, why your financial status has made it difficult to pursue your dreams, and how you use both your right and left brain.
