The Tevis College Arts Scholarships are awarded in memory of Dorothy Tevis, a devoted patron of the arts in Carroll County. One $1,000 scholarship is provided to each public high school to award to their outstanding student pursuing a college degree in the arts. Awards are based on artistic promise. For the purpose of this program, arts are defined to encompass vocal and instrumental music, music education, performance, music theory, composition, art, art history, arts education, creative writing, drama, theatre, media arts, film studies, dance, photography, graphic design, costume design, architecture, interior design and animation. The applications are collected by the CCAC, but a committee appointed by each school principal reviews the applications and chooses the winner from their school.
Carroll County residents attending a private high school may apply. Those applications will be reviewed by the CCAC Board of Directors.
Tom Holder was a true visionary, a consummate artist and designer of the Arts Council’s logo. His work ranged from complex abstract paintings to light-hearted drawings on the chalk board at Harry’s Main Street Grille. The CCAC honors Tom’s memory through a scholarship fund that was established in his name by friends and family. It enables young artists from Carroll County to enroll in our art classes, camps and theatre troupe, regardless of their ability to pay. Please contact Sandy Oxx if you would like contribute to this fund. If you are interested in receiving scholarship funding please fill out and return the Tom Holder Memorial Scholarship Application Form. These are accepted at anytime.
