2015 PCA Scholarship Program

For the 33rd year Prescott Center for the Arts is providing an opportunity for young people residing in Yavapai County between the ages of 10 and 18 to vie for scholarship awards in the Visual, Musical and Dramatic arts. Registration opens on Jan 23, 2015.  Instructions for entry and the online registration form are below.  Please follow the instructions and ensure that your entry is transmitted.

The PCA Scholarship Program is made possible through the generosity and support of local groups and individuals, the PCA Scholarship Program has grown from 7 entries and 2 winners in 1983, to an annual program. This past year we awarded cash prizes over $14,000.  We are especially grateful to the following groups for their continued support of arts for children:  Margaret Morris Foundation, J.S. Acker Musical Showcase, The Frontier Rotary, Kiwanis, PCA Singers, PCA Charter Auxiliary, PCA Concert Committee, PCA Fundraising Committee, and numerous Performers & Patrons of PCA. We hope you will join us as a donor or a volunteer in the coming year to help support the many talented young people in our area. Call the PCA office for more information.
