Newton Community Pride is thrilled to announce it is partnering with Newton artist Nancy Schön and awarding three high school seniors scholarships this spring who are pursuing the arts in higher education. The Nancy Quint Schön Arts Scholarship will be given to a Newton North, Newton South, and METCO student.
"I am delighted to foster the next generation of Newton artists by giving financial support to students pursuing the arts after high school graduation," stated Newton artist Nancy Schön. "I am indeed honored to be partnering with Newton Community Pride. It allows me to create a legacy and an opportunity to support young creatives in our city, and that brings me much joy," Schön added.
At 93 years young, Nancy Schön is best known for her charming bronze sculptures of Eeyore, Pooh, and Piglet at the Newton Free Library, the Tortoise and the Hare at Boston's Copley Square, and the iconic Make Way for Ducklings statues in the Boston Public Garden.
High School applicants are encouraged to submit an essay, application and example of their creative work to their high school guidance department by March 11, 2022. For more information and scholarship details https://newtoncommunitypride.org/scholarship/
