As officials with The Great Khalid Foundation set to award its third annual Performing Arts Scholarships this spring, they remind area students to apply ahead of the approaching deadline.
“Each scholarship is $10,000 and that type of educational support is life-changing for both the student and their family,” said Linda Wolfe, Executive Director of The Great Khalid Foundation, “so we really want to encourage all the talented seniors to apply.”
The application period ends on Wednesday, March 31, 2021 and is open to all high school seniors pursuing a performing arts major at the college or university level in the fall.
Applicants must have a 3.5 GPA and submit a completed application form, high school transcript, essay response, and a video of their performing art. The scholarship is open to applicants nationwide.
Officials with The Great Khalid Foundation would like to thank Mattress Firm for sponsoring a 2021 Performing Arts Scholarship.
“Mattress Firm is proud to partner with The Great Khalid Foundation once again and we know this scholarship will go a long way in helping a gifted student pursue their dreams,” said Dan Longoria, Owner of Mattress Firm, “we’ve always been about giving back and this is just another way that Mattress Firm will continue to celebrate and uplift our community.”
