Summer Theatre Accepting Scholarship Applications

Fort Peck Summer Theatre is accepting acpplications for the Jake Etchart Scholarship.

Etchart grew up spending summers at Fort Peck Lake, with much of his time spent around the Fort Peck Theatre where his family was actively involved as volunteers. He loved watching his sisters, Alexa and Christen, perform on the Fort Peck stage.

His family and friends established a theatre scholarship fund in his memory which is invested within the Fort Peck Theatre Preservation Endowment of the Montana Community Foundation. The interest from this investment provides up to two scholarships per year for undergraduate or graduate students pursuing a career in the fine arts. To be eligible, applicants must have a history of volunteering or participating in some program sponsored by the Fort Peck Fine Arts Council, and they must be at least a full time undergraduate at an accredited university with at least a 2.50 GPA. Priority will be given to undergraduate applicants.

Visit www.fortpecktheatre. org for complete instructions and an application. Applications must be postmarked by July 15 and mailed to the Fort Peck Fine Arts Council at PO Box 973, Glasgow, MT 59230.
