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.

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. The 2 awarded candidates will be selected with the help of the HSPVA Friends program, the HSPVA Theatre Department faculty and a representative from the Sermoonjoy Scholarship Fund.
