ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP
The Mitch Hebert Memorial Scholarship in Creative Arts
The Hebert family inaugurated this scholarship in honor of Mitch, a vital and creative spirit taken from them much too soon.

The recipient may be an entering Freshman or an upperclassman. 3.0 GPA is required. The scholarship money may be applied to tuition, housing, or anything else the student needs.The purpose of this scholarship is to support the growth of talented young artists.
