Celebrating Darlington’s mission of providing Every Art for Everyone, we offer the following scholarships to our community:
The Agape Fund, in Memory of Andrea Lauren Hemmenway
Established in 2014, the Agape Fund assists students who have the skills and passion for music, art, dance, and drama, but may not have the financial capacity to participate. This funds exist to ensure Darlington can break down financial barriers and give an equal opportunity for students to learn, create, connect and experience the arts. Andi devoted a good deal of her young life to taking advantage of the many programs offered by Darlington, and we are proud to offer scholarships in her memory.
Athena Scholarship Award
In honor of former Director Diana Sophocles Hemmenway’s mother Athena Sophocles, this scholarship is awarded for private music lessons at Darlington and is granted solely on the basis of ability and talent to students completing grades 5-11. Scholarships are awarded in two categories: Junior Level (grades 5-8) and Senior Level (grades 9-11), with winners receiving $500 and $750 respectively towards next year’s lessons at Darlington Arts Center. Students may apply for the scholarship in early April, with the competition occurring in May. The winners will be announced at Darlington’s Honor Recital and Toast to the Arts Event in June.
