BLACK CAUCUS OFFERS ARTS SCHOLARSHIP

0

March 27, 2002 – The office of Delegate to Congress Donna Christensen is accepting applications for the Congressional Black Caucus' Spouses Performing Arts Scholarship.
This new scholarship is open to individuals who are pursuing a career in the performing arts, music, or a related field in the entertainment industry. Other requirements include an official transcript and video of applicant's talents, according to a release. The deadline is May 1, 2002.
Delegate Christensen will be allowed to nominate one student who lives or attends school in the Virgin Islands. The Caucus will choose five students from the 34 applicants they will receive, and present them with $3,000 scholarships.
The scholarship is the result of a partnership between the Caucus and Heineken USA.
The five selected students will have an opportunity to open for India Arie at a Caucus function later this year, as well as be featured on a CD that is part of a Heineken USA Unsigned Artist Project.
Anyone interested in applying should contact the Delegate's Washington office at 202-225-1790 and speak to office manager Steven Steele.
