FALLS VILLAGE, CT, MARCH 8, 2022

Applications for the Contemporary Visual Arts Scholarship (CVAS) are now available.

Graduating seniors at Housatonic Valley Regional High School (HVRHS) who are committed to pursuing a degree in Fine Art at a four-year college or university are encouraged to apply.  The student must have attended HVRHS for two consecutive years upon graduation.

The CVAS provides substantial financial support to the awardee by contributing $80,000 to the college or university of the student's choice.  This award is dispersed over four years in an annual amount of $20,000.

The CVAS was established in 2004 to support a student at HVRHS who demonstrates both artistic talent and financial need to attend a college program in visual arts.  The Foundation for Contemporary Arts administers the scholarship.

Applications can be obtained by speaking with your art teacher, film teacher, or counselor.  Materials will be reviewed by the scholarship committee and candidates will be contacted later this spring.

Deadline for submittal of the application is April 29, 2022.
