Arts Center Friends Scholarships advance arts education by helping to fund classes and workshops for youth and adults in Fuquay-Varina. We are committed to ensuring that all townspeople have regular and repeated opportunities to learn, practice, and perform at the Arts Center.

The Arts Center publishes its class/workshop schedule three times a year, with opportunities for: January-April, May-August, and September-December. Arts Center Friends Scholarships are offered in two categories: youth (15 and under) and adults (16 and older).

Based on availability of scholarship monies, the Friends will fund up to 90% of a class or workshop for a single individual. Individual applicants must provide evidence of financial need and of interest in/commitment to the activity for which a scholarship is sought.  

Scholarship deadlines vary according to the published schedule: Scholarship applications are due one month before a class or workshop begins. Scholarship applicants will be informed three weeks before a program’s start date as to whether, and the extent to which, they have received scholarship funding. Once awarded a scholarship, recipients must complete their registration one full week before the class or workshop begins. The Friends transfer all scholarship monies directly to the Arts Center on behalf of individual recipients. This requires scholarship recipients to register in person at the Arts Center.

Please note: Residents of Fuquay-Varina are given priority, but we encourage applications from non-residents as well. As a general rule, we limit a single household to three scholarships per year.
