The Jones Memorial Scholarship for the Visual Arts




In 1994, in memory of Dr. Culver Jones and his wife, Beatrice, The Jones Memorial Scholarship for the Visual Arts was established.  Dr. Jones was a gifted artist himself, and he and his wife were dedicated and devoted to furthering the interest of the visual arts in Bay County.  Their support of Studio 23/The Arts Center, throughout the years, has contributed greatly to the growth and continued interest of the visual arts in our community.  The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize, encourage and assist students who wish to pursue a career in the visual arts.


This scholarship application will be judged by an independent selection committee and distributed by the Board of Directors of Studio 23.  A $250 per semester ($500 per year) two (2) year scholarship will be awarded after the candidates have submitted a portfolio consisting of five(5) works of art.
