Barnes-Travis Arts Scholarship

A component fund of the NC Community Foundation
 
The Arts Council of Moore County’s Barnes-Travis Arts Scholarship was established in 2000 with the goal to provide support to Moore County middle and high school students with a demonstrated talent and interest in the arts. The scholarship may be used for such items as fees for a music or art camp, studying dance at a local dance company, or taking private lessons with an art or music teacher. The scholarship may not be used to fund college attendance.

The scholarship is named for Harry Barnes and Vaud Ancil Travis, III, two long-time and strong supporters of the Arts Council of Moore County and the arts throughout Moore County.  Two additional funds have been created in memory of local artist Carol Lawson Rouhier to award scholarships to visual arts applicants, and in memory of actor Sara Schrock to award scholarships to theatre applicants.

Since the inception of the Barnes-Travis Arts Scholarship, the Arts Council has awarded 74 scholarships in the amount of $22,595 to middle and high school students pursuing their interest in the arts.
