Belcher scholarship available

Applications are being sought for the Jean O. Belcher Scholarship.
The Barnwell County Arts Council annually awards the $500 scholarship to a deserving graduating senior from Barnwell County whose talents and interests have encouraged him/her to seek advanced studies in an art or music field. Any artistic pursuit is included (music, visual, theatre, dance, creative writing, and/or their respective fields).
Applicants must plan to attend an institution of higher learning (college or university) and be a resident of Barnwell County; graduating from one of the four schools within the county; or receiving a high school diploma through the state as a home schooled student.
One scholarship award will be granted each year on the basis of eligibility, artistic integrity and (if applicable) need. Applications will be judged on the basis of assessment with no regard to race, color, disability, sex, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin.
