Margaret Brady Fund scholarship applications now accepted

Area students pursuing artistic excellence may apply for scholarships as part of the Margaret Frans Brady Fund.

The Juneau Community Foundation and the Brady family of Skagway have announced that up $7,500 in scholarships are up for grabs and applications must be received by April 15. Applications forms are available at the Juneau Community Foundation website at www.juneaucf.org.

The Margaret Frans Brady Fund was established in 2012 at the Juneau Community Foundation to support arts and education projects and programs in Skagway and northern Southeast Alaska. A separate MFB Scholarship Fund was established a year later to assist students and artists in our area with scholarships to help them improve their creative abilities. Since 2013, a total of $31,350 has been awarded to 40 area students.

Scholarships are considered for all students pursuing creative arts including writing, music, visual and performance arts. These scholarships include grants to help artists attend arts camps, schools, colleges, symposiums, or conferences.

The scholarship committee will make recommendations and announce this year’s scholarships by May 15 Scholarships will be sent to the tax-exempt non-profit or educational institution that awardees will be attending.
