Arts guild taking scholarship applications

The Kendall Arts Guild is accepting applications for the Kendall Arts Guild – Russ Forrer Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship, established in 2005, recently was renamed in memory of local educator and scholarship organizer Russ Forrer, who was instrumental in the formation of the scholarship committee and worked tirelessly to ensure its availability to students to further their art education.

Student applicants, parents or guardians must be Kendall County residents. Applicants also must pursue a degree in the visual arts. 

Selected applicants must provide a portfolio to the scholarship committee for evaluation.

The winner will present their portfolio to the members of the guild at a Kendall Arts Guild meeting. 

The scholarship is open to students of all ages and it may be received more than once.

Applications are due or to be postmarked by June 1. Mail completed applications to Kendall Arts Guild, PO Box 117, Yorkville IL 60560.

For information, call Joan McEachern at 630-567-6407.
