The Grand Arts Council is a strong supporter of the arts in education. A scholarship fund is set up to offer a scholarship to a graduating senior from each of the Grand County high schools this year. Application for the funds is through the counseling office in each high school, with applications due no later than March 31, 2023. The student must be pursuing a certificate or degree with an emphasis on the arts in some form. This can be fine art, music, education, culinary, dramatic or any other field that relates to the arts.
