December 23, 2015

Applications will be accepted for the Denver Lindley, Jr. Arts Scholarship beginning January 1. The Denver Lindley, Jr. Arts Scholarship was established in memory of Denver Lindley by Jim and Debbie Millis, Bill and Ellen Kealy, and others to provide scholarships to graduating seniors attending high school in Dare County, NC.

Denver Lindley was a Yale-educated artist who believed that “the arts are vital to society.” After moving to the Outer Banks in 1988, he developed a following of those who admired both Denver and his talent. The scholarship may provide a $1,500 renewable award for students who will pursue full-time undergraduate degrees from accredited post-secondary institutions.

Scholarships will be applied to the cost of undergraduate tuition, fees, on campus room and
board, and other college expenses. To receive consideration, applicants must:
• attend a Dare County high school
• be graduating high school seniors
• have a minimum cumulative unweighted GPA of 3.0
• demonstrate artistic talent and an interest in pursuing active involvement in the visual arts as indicated by art teacher recommendation and a personal statement
