2021 CAAC Art Scholarships Application Deadline Extended To April 30th

The Cheboygan Area Arts Council is eager to announce that the Wendy Caulkins, Irene Rose Hubbel, and Robert L. Moloney scholarships will be offered again this year. 

The Irene Rose Hubbel scholarship is for graduating seniors accepted into an arts program, an accredited college, trade school, or any other program in the arts. Irene attended CAHS and devoted her life to volunteering, her family, and the arts; first awarded in 2020, this scholarship joins two other CAAC scholarships that run in perpetuity. 

The Wendy Caulkins Fine Arts scholarship was endowed in 2013 and is available to a high school senior planning advanced studies in an arts related field, including: Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Applied Arts, Graphic Art and Design, Digital Arts, or Creative Writing. Caulkins served on the CAAC board and was instrumental in saving the Opera House in the 1980s. 

The Robert L. Moloney scholarship was established in 1988, providing funds for young people grades 8-11 to attend summer camp programs specializing in music and the arts. If the scholarship cannot be used in 2021 due to covid-19 cancellations, it may be used in 2022. 

The applications are now online at www.theoperahouse.org/resources. Please email a completed application and required documents to Lisa Dorrance, art director, at lisa@theoperahouse.org. The deadline to submit the scholarship application is Friday, April 30th 2021.
