Deadline near for performing arts scholarship

OCEANSIDE — Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation’s Performing Arts Scholarships are presented annually to graduating high school seniors, based upon student experience, contributions to their performing arts program, and a teacher recommendation. Application deadline is April 28.

To be considered for this award, applicants from North County San Diego must submit a typed one- to two-page application, which includes the following information: 1) name, current telephone number, and mailing address, e-mail address, name of high school; 2) high school coursework in the performing arts, including completed and current; 3) additional outside or extracurricular performing arts experience; 4) future educational and career goals; 5) how this scholarship would benefit and/or assist the applicant. 6) why this scholarship should be awarded to the applicant.

Additionally, students must include a Letter of Recommendation from their high school performing arts instructor, and a video tape/ DVD of their own performance. The video recording should be no longer than 5 minutes, and should showcase the student’s best efforts. The camera should be focused on the performer rather than a large group.

The organization will not accept audio CDs as its members need to see performances. Students are advised not to use YouTube, because the web distortion will not show them to their best advantage. Submit Scholarship package to Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation, PO Box 3054, Oceanside, CA, 92051. For questions, e-mail to HYPERLINK “mailto:[email protected][email protected] or visit
