Mary Wheeler Davis Visual & Performing Arts Scholarship Now Open

March 03, 2022 | Features

Mary Wheeler Davis felt her purpose in life was to improve the quality of life for others, especially to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of all citizens of Spartanburg County. The family of Mary Wheeler Davis created a special trust as a memorial to her to be devoted to the promotion of the arts in Spartanburg County by means of scholarships for studies in the performing and visual arts.

The Mary Wheeler Davis Scholarship is an annual award open to high school seniors from Spartanburg County who are interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree in the visual or performing arts. The selection is based on student character, financial need, and artistic potential, and at least one scholarship of $1,000 is usually awarded. The scholarships are awarded based on the recommendations of a panel of community leaders with interest and expertise in the visual and performing arts. With tuition prices rising and in the midst of a pandemic, this scholarship would help give financial relief and give the recipient a chance of furthering their education.

Students who are looking to partake in a career in the performing and visual arts are heavily encouraged to apply. This would be a great opportunity to showcase talent and demonstrate the artistic capability that we have in Spartanburg.

Interested applicants must submit a resume; letters of recommendation; statements pertaining to career goals, scholarship use, and need; and support materials, such as writing samples, tapes, films, and videos. The application must be turned into the Chapman Cultural Center office by 5 P.M., Friday, March 16, 2022. Click on the link below to apply.
