The Hardeman County Arts Council (HCAC) is offering a $500, one-time scholarship to a qualified high school senior from Bolivar Central High School (BCHS), Middleton High School (MHS), and Hardeman County homeschool students zoned for their respective school. 

"The HCAC is proud to be able to give back to our community and support the continued education of our youth. Our youth are the future of our communities and the HCAC is dedicated to giving them an outlet to express themselves and support their education." ~ Brandon Burvee, HCAC President

The scholarship is open to seniors pursuing a college major or minor in the arts and/or related fields. Degree programs in art, creative writing, dance, drama, literature, and music, as well as teaching in these areas or related fields, will be considered. Students who have participated in an HCAC production on stage or behind the scenes, are also eligible to apply even if they are not pursuing a degree in one of those fields.

The application deadline is Friday, April 12, 2024. 

BCHS and MHS students must return applications to their counselors for approval and sign-off and homeschool students must return applications to Jennifer Smeltser/HCAC. 

Late entries will not be accepted. 

The $500 check will be mailed directly to the scholarship recipient after the student presents a schedule of official class registration from the college they are attending.
