Spring Booster Lesson  Scholarship Information 
Each semester the Fine Arts Boosters offer $100 lesson stipends to fine arts students to be used toward lessons/classes in any area of the arts.  These stipends are not need based.  Instead they are a means for our families to offset the costs of lessons/classes.  If a student is taking lessons/classes outside of BHS in any area of the arts including band, orchestra, choir, acting, dance, visual arts or TV production, I encourage you to apply for a stipend.  

On Monday, January 22nd, the Boosters will begin accepting applications for the Spring 2018 Lesson/Class stipends.   All current BHS Fine Arts students* are eligible to apply for one of twenty-one $100 stipends to be applied toward lessons/classes. Applications will be accepted beginning Monday, January 22nd through Friday, January 26th. After the January 26th deadline, if the number of applicants exceeds twenty-one, there will be a random drawing to determine the stipend recipients.   Please visit the Fine Arts Boosters website or follow the link below during the application window to apply online.  

*PLEASE NOTE:  Fall  2017 stipend recipients are NOT eligible to apply for a spring award.
