The Louis E. Catron Scholarship for Artistic Development provides funding to support the artistic growth of talented students in the creative and performing arts. Named in honor of Dr. Louis Catron, Professor of Theatre Emeritus, the purpose of this scholarship is to encourage students to develop as artists through experiences at various off-campus venues that extend beyond the existing William and Mary curriculum and departmental programs.
During the fall semester, the Charles Center hosts the Catron Scholars Exhibition and Reception in Andrews Hall Gallery. This event provides the current Catron Scholarship recipients to discuss and display their work. Brief presentations by each Catron Scholar are followed by a reception.
