Hawkeye Community Theatre, in an effort to encourage young people to enter the educational area of theater, is offering student scholarships.
Students who are seniors in high school or freshmen in college who show abilities, achievements, and love for theatrical endeavors are eligible. The Board of Directors reserves the right to award either one or multiple scholarships in the amount of no less than $300 and not to exceed $750, which may be renewed for a second year.
Letters will be sent to the high school counselors and drama teachers in the area encouraging them to identify students who might qualify for the scholarship. Forms of application will be included in the letter for the teachers to give to prospective college students interested in winning the scholarship. Application deadline is April 1.
Anyone acquainted with students who would benefit from and meet the qualifications for a Hawkeye Community Theatre Scholarship should encourage that student to contact Hawkeye Community Theatre by phone at 576-6061, or by email by going to the theater's website at www.hawkeyetheatre.com/.
