Congratulations to the 2018 Culture Works Leonard P. Roberts Scholarship Recipients

Categories: Latest News,News

Every year, Culture Works awards Leonard P. Roberts Scholarships to Dayton Region students who demonstrate outstanding participation in and commitment to the arts.
We received an incredible number of applications from high-achieving high school seniors and college students this year, and we’re excited to announce that the scholarship committee has selected 14 students to receive scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year.
These 14 awardees demonstrate ingenuity, generosity, and, of course, creativity. From creating an interfaith performing arts group to promote peace and tolerance, to organizing pop-up charity concerts to support music education for elementary students, to beautifying their neighborhoods through public art creation, these students are putting the arts to good work in our community. We congratulate them all on their achievements and look forward to seeing what they do next.
