Polish club to give $500 scholarships


The Polish Arts Club of Youngstown is accepting applications for its scholarships from aspiring artists, musicians, dancers and other students of Polish descent.

Third- and fourth-year college students, as well as post-graduates, are urged to apply for the five $500 scholarships.

If an active member of the Polish Arts Club sponsors the student, Polish descent is not mandatory.

Applicants are asked to submit a brief essay on significant contributions of Polish nationals in American history or to choose one event in the history of Poland and explain its significance.

The application deadline is Feb. 3.

Winners will be announced at the group’s Annual Scholarship Art, Music & Tea Reception from 1 to 4 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Butler Institute of American Art, Butler North.

For information contact Lisa Lotze, scholarship chairwoman, at 330-549-0124 or lisa@polishyoungstown.com.

Applications are available to download at www.polishyoungstown.com/artsclub.
