This year’s Scholarship Winners have been chosen!
Scholarship means a lot to us here at the North Shore Players, so we’ve “put our money where our mouths are” with real financial assistance.
North Shore Players
Memorial Scholarship for the Performing Arts
To: Fine Arts/Guidance Departments
The North Shore Players, a Danvers-based community theatre company, announces its annual memorial scholarship award. The scholarship was originally established to honor the memory of Viola J. Patten, a multi-talented member of the North Shore Players, and was changed in 1994 to include the departed and beloved founding members, Barbara Hannon and Polly Jenkins. This scholarship will be granted to a graduating senior who plans to major in the performing arts (theatre, music, dance) and is currently attending Andover, Beverly, Danvers, Georgetown, Hamilton-Wenham Regional, Lynn Classical, Lynn English, Lynnfield, Marblehead, Masconomet, North Andover, Peabody, Salem or Swampscott High School. We are also accepting applications from home-schooled students from the communities represented above. However, if the applicant has been a member of the North Shore Players or a parent of the applicant has been a member of the North Shore Players for at least the past 2 years, then the applicant may be a senior at an accredited high school.
The North Shore Players Memorial Scholarship for the Performing Arts committee will accept up to three applications per school. If, in the discretion of the committee, there is no appropriate candidate, it reserves the right to hold the scholarship over until the following year.
Scholarship applications can be downloaded (or filled in) from our website: www.northshoreplayers.org. All applicants must meet the criteria as outlined in the scholarship application. Applications must be accompanied by:
1. A letter of reference from a school teacher, administrator, adviser, etc.
2. A letter of recommendation from someone outside of the school.
3. A copy of high school transcript.
4. An essay on the choice of major, including the reason for the choice.
