The Rariden Scholarship is awarded annually to a student entering Earlham who is interested in pursuing an area within the visual and performing arts—art, music or theatre. Preference is given to a student from Wayne County, Indiana, although the selection committee will consider Indiana students from outside the county as well. The scholarship is $5,000 over four years at Earlham, totaling $20,000.
Earlham’s admissions counselors will screen applications from Wayne, Fayette, Randolph, Union and Franklin counties. The convener of the Visual and Performing Arts division will send eligible applicants a letter and an information form in March. The form should be promptly returned to the Office of Admissions.
Candidates will be contacted in April for interviews, and the winner will be notified by May 1.
In addition, the Len Holvig and Anna Morrisett awards offer financial assistance for singers and pianists as well as numerous awards for private lessons.
