Annual Friends of the Page-Walker History Scholarship

Applications are now being accepted for the annual Friends of the Page-Walker History Scholarship, which is a one-time grant awarded to a high school senior residing in Cary who exhibits an aptitude and interest in the study of history and humanities.

The Friends’ History Scholarship was established in 2012 to advance our mission of enriching the community by serving as guardians for the Page-Walker Arts & History Center, by advocating preservation of Cary historic sites, by archiving history and facilitating history education, and by promoting the cultural arts.

The $750 award is given to a high school senior who is a Cary resident, and may be used for any educational-related expenses.  In addition, the recipient’s name will be displayed on a permanent plaque at the Page-Walker Arts & History Center.
 
To be eligible, students must submit a 600-1,000 word essay on a local history topic, along with an application and letter of recommendation from their High School history instructor or counselor.  The 2014 History Scholarship essay topic is The Impact of Growth on the Culture of the Cary Community.

Completed applications are due by May 15, 2014.  The scholarship recipient will be notified by May 30, 2014 and recognized at the Friends’ Board of Directors meeting on June 4, 2014.
