As Stage Coach Players (SCP) continues to “Spark Hope” this season, the theatre group is currently seeking applicants for their 2021 Performing Arts Scholarship. The deadline for SCP to receive applications is Mon., April 5, 2021.
The application contains two sections. The first section is dedicated to personal information that includes extracurricular activities, community involvement, honors and awards and employment history. Additionally there is a required essay of 500 words or less, discussing your interest in the performing arts and your major area of study.

The performing arts scholarship of SCP was started in 1999, with Jill Sanderson winning the first scholarship.
