PEGTV offers scholarships for visual arts majors

RUTLAND—High school seniors planning to attend college in visual arts can lower college tuition costs by applying for a 2017 Courcelle Scholarship offered by PEGTV. Two Rutland County high school seniors who exhibit a high level of proficiency and interest in visual arts and intend to pursue postsecondary education have the opportunity to win a $2,000 scholarship.
The 19th annual PEGTV Courcelle Scholarship honors the memory of Joe Courcelle for his pioneering work in public access television in Rutland. Courcelle was an active member of the original board of directors, a dedicated independent producer and an integral part of the establishment of Rutland’s PEGTV.
A special selection committee will review the applications and interview potential candidates. Applications have been sent to Rutland County high schools for distribution to interested candidates and are due by May 1, 2017, with personal interviews to be conducted in mid-May.
Anyone interested in receiving an application may contact his or her high school guidance office or call Bryn Williams, Channel 20 program coordinator, at PEGTV, 802-747-0151.
PEGTV is Rutland County’s public access television station comprised of Comcast channels 15, 20 and 21 and VTel channels 163, 164, and 165, and is available throughout Rutland County to all cable subscribers.
