This year UCA will be awarding three MECA scholarships to students from Franklin, Somerset, and Oxford Counties who are pursuing an education in art, art education, or fine craft. These scholarships are awarded to students in the spring of their freshman year and are based on financial need, academic success, and recommendations from their instructors.
UCA also provides scholarships to Haystack School of Arts and Crafts 3-day weekend workshop for high school juniors. We expect there to be at least 5 this year. These students work in one chosen medium for the entirety. This is great exposure and a wonderful program for kids who are highly interested in fine craft and art.
If you know of a student who meets the listed qualifications for for either program, please have them contact Kathleen Perelka at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-474-6168.
