Doris Butz Memorial Scholarship

One of the main objectives for the Paulding Fine Arts Association is the High School Scholarship Award, which is presented each year to a graduating senior from Paulding County who plans to major in the Fine Arts. The Board of Directors and/or Education Committee select one or more qualified candidates to receive or split the total amount.

Students interested in receiving the scholarship must submit a copy of their transcript, completed application, and a sample of work such as an art portfolio (digital photos, slides, or originals), tape of performance (2-4 minutes) in early spring.
