The Catron Scholarships are intended to support the artistic growth of talented students in the creative and performing arts through off-campus educational experiences, either at a formal educational institution or through structured practical hands-on exposure, in the United States or abroad, for a summer or a semester.
This fund's purpose is to encourage students to develop as artists through experiences at various off-campus venues that extend beyond the existing William & Mary curriculum and departmental programs. To that end, the Fund will support off-campus activities that are instrumental in helping students enhance their artistic capabilities through academic or studio classes, structured hands-on experiences, or a combination of the two.
The fourth annual Catron Scholars Exhibit and Reception will be on Thursday, November 17th, 2016 from 5pm-7pm in the Andrews Hall Gallery.
