We believe in the importance of education in broadening our understanding of the world, and deepening our compassion for those of us in it.
To that end, we’ve established several scholarships to help provide the funds to help outstanding students find and pursue their passions. Each of these scholarships are connected to institutions and experiences Dragon loved. Dragon was a 9th grader at the Orange County School of the Arts in the Frederick Fennell Winds Studies Program. Dragon loved his time at OCSA, and we want to encourage and support the talented students currently studying there as they move onto college. Dragon spent most of the summer of 2015 studying college level courses at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland, through their Center for Talented Youth (CTY) program. Because these places held a special place in Dragon’s heart, and because they helped shape Dragon’s education and character, we would like to help other children attend and benefit from these fine institutions.
CTY is all about enriching academic experiences, growing independence, and new friendships. A summer at CTY opens worlds. These scholarships will make CTY possible for up to four worthy teenagers.
Our OCSA Scholarship is an award of $5,000 for college tuition for an outstanding graduating 2016 Senior from the OCSA Wind or Jazz Studies program. He/she will be a civic-minded student leader with demonstrated accomplishments in arts and academics.
