Since 2012, the Westmoreland Arts & Heritage Festival has awarded a scholarship to a high school senior who resides in Westmoreland County with intentions to enroll full-time in a visual arts program at an accredited college or university.

Scholarships are awarded annually and winners are announced in late April. The winners will be presented with a scholarship award of $1,000 on stage during the Festival’s Opening Ceremony on Thursday, July 1, 2021, at Twin Lakes Park. Our organization is also happy to attend the winning recipient’s high school award assembly.
