The University of Wisconsin-Parkside: All newly-admitted students are invited to enter the Picken Arts and Humanities Scholarship Competition. Open to students who plan to pursue art, communication, English, liberal studies, music, Spanish or theater arts degrees at the university. A total of eight Picken Arts and Humanities Scholarships will be awarded. The deadline to apply is March 10. The scholarships are made possible by the generosity of Kathleen “Kitty” Picken. In addition to naming the Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for Arts and Humanities for her stepmother, Picken’s $3.5 million contribution also made assisting students financially a priority. Students who have applied to and been accepted by UW-Parkside and have completed the online application are eligible for scholarship consideration. Visit www.uwp.edu/admissions/artscholar.cfm to complete the Scholarship Day survey and for talent requirements. Students who apply for the scholarships are expected to attend the Scholarship Day event March 16. Recipients of the Picken Arts and Humanities Scholarships will be announced that afternoon. A number of other scholarships also will be announced that day. Details, (262)595-2457.
