Olive Hyde offers scholarships
Submitted By Diane Leys
Olive Hyde Art Guild, a volunteer non-profit organization, is offering three scholarships for the study of art. To apply, you must be a Fremont high school senior, a Fremont resident, and have plans to include some visual arts classes at an accredited college or university. The three non-renewable scholarships awarded will be based on artistic merit, not financial need. First place will receive $2,000. Two honorable mentions of $1,000 each will also be given. All of the awards will be sent to the Financial Aid Office of the school the recipient is planning to attend. In addition, the high school art teacher of the first place student will receive $500 for classroom art supplies.
FinalistsÕ art work will be exhibited to the public and awards will be presented during a reception at the Olive Hyde Art Gallery, 123 Washington Blvd., Fremont, on Friday, May 9, 2014 from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
The application deadline is March 29, 2014. Application forms are available through career centers and art instructors at the Fremont high schools, at the City of Fremont Recreation Dept., and on the Olive Hyde Art Guild website:Êwww.olivehydeartguild.org/scholarships/
