2017 Garrity-Laird Scholarship Applications

It is once again time for local high school students to apply for the Carnegie Garrity-Laird Scholarship..

To further its mission of supporting and promoting theater in the community, The Carnegie Players award a scholarship to assist a local graduating senior or a current college student to supplement his or her college tuition.

The Carnegie Players’ scholarship is awarded to a student who is a resident of the Rensselaer Central Schools district, whether that student attends public school, private school, Christian school, or is home-schooled. The scholarship is also available to a current full time College student who was previously a resident of the Rensselaer Schools district.

The Scholarship is awarded annually to a student pursuing studies in Performing Arts or Theater Arts at the College level and must have participated in theater in school or community organizations. Preference is given to applicants who have been active with The Carnegie Players.
