Scholarship offered for those pursuing study of visual arts

The Kendall Arts Guild has sent information and application forms to area schools for its Russ Forrer Memorial Scholarship.

The KAG scholarship, established in 2005, has been recently renamed the Russ Forrer Memorial Scholarship in honor of Forrer, an area educator who was instrumental in the formation of the scholarship committee and worked tirelessly to ensure its availability to students to further their art education, according to Peggy Sutton, KAG president.

Applicants for the scholarship must be Kendall County residents, and pursuing 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. Applications are due or must be postmarked by June 1.

Mail completed applications to: PO Box 117, Yorkville, IL 60560.

Applications can also be dropped off at the Yorkville Public Library in care of Sharyl Iwanski.

Those seeking information or additional copies of the application may contact Sutton at pmcwsutton@gmail.com.
