The Sermoonjoy Scholarship Fund awards 2 annual scholarships to Kinder High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (“HSPVA”) Theatre Department seniors who will pursue the performing arts as part of their higher education studies. The Scholarship award is up to $3,000 annually based on need, which will continue through undergraduate school as long as the recipient maintains a B average by the end of each school year in academics as well as in their art area. This scholarship can total up to a $12,000 award per recipient. Need is determined if a student has a tuition and/or dormitory housing financial insufficiency after the students’ financial plan has been set by the institution.
