Denis M. Fitzpatrick Scholarship, 2016
Named in memory of an educator who was a long time member of Arlington Friends of the Drama, the scholarship is awarded to a student who has demonstrated strong interest in theater.
The Denis M. Fitzpatrick Scholarship is open to any graduating high school senior going on to higher education, who:
- Has worked, either as cast or crew, in school or community theater
- Plans to pursue higher education in theater arts or participate in school or community theater while pursuing higher education
- Priority is given to students who have been active at Arlington Friends of the Drama.
In addition to the scholarship we will select a small number of continuing high school students to receive a free theater membership, based on their interest in volunteering at Arlington Friends of the Drama during the next theater season beginning in July 2016.
Applications will be accepted until May 25, 2016, and the scholarship will be awarded at our season’s final business meeting on June 19, 2016.
The Dennis Fitzpatrick Scholarship Committee wants AFD members to encourage students to apply for the college scholarship or free membership.
Note that seniors from all area high schools can apply for the scholarship, and students entering any year of high school can apply for the membership.
