Hunter Family Scholarship

In 2001, Dr. and Mrs. R. Merrill Hunter established a scholarship to help attract and retain exceptional fine arts students. Parents of Katie Cecil '98, Chris '01, Matt ‘04, and Anna '08, the Hunters make this scholarship available to rising ninth grade students who are either new to the school or currently enrolled.

The Hunter Family Scholarship provides up to $2,000 of tuition for each year the recipient is enrolled and participates in the Upper School fine arts program.This scholarship also allows for a one-time gift up to $2,000 toward the cost of attending a fine arts enrichment opportunity. Applications for the 2020-21 Hunter Scholarship are due by March 19, 2020. Applications are first reviewed by a committee, which may include practicing artists within the community; and then are reviewed by representatives from each of the Upper School fine arts disciplines. The students selected after these initial reviews are interviewed and prepare a presentation or a performance. Students are reminded of the academic standing required to receive and retain the scholarship for four years. Questions about the scholarship should be directed to Dr. David McChesney, Director of Fine Arts at or 919-847-0900, ext. 2670.
