Susan Hillhouse Performing
Arts Scholarship

ELIGIBILITY

A $1,000 scholarship opportunity is for enrolled and full-time active college/university students to apply who are pursuing a performance arts degree (major or minor) or an arts-related teaching degree (major or minor) and intend to stay active in the arts after the receipt of their degree – either as a performer or accredited teacher. One individual will be chosen per year. Students may apply for consecutive years (and that includes students who previously received the scholarship may again apply for consideration). If no candidate is selected, the funds will be held over for the following year/s. This is a ten-year scholarship set up to honor past OCPAG President Susan Hillhouse beginning in 2020.
