About the Scholarships


Celebrating its 53rd year, the Pembroke Arts Festival was founded to promote and celebrate the arts in the Pembroke community. Each summer since 1968 the Pembroke Arts Festival committee has presented one of the region's finest art shows. 


The Pembroke Arts Festival Scholarship Committee is sorry to announce that we will be unable to award scholarships this year.  The monetary awards are primarily funded by our Raffle.  There is a probability that we will not be able to conduct a raffle this year due to Covid 19 State Guidelines.  We look forward to being able to resume our two scholarship awards, for Visual and Performing Arts, in the years to come.





How to Apply 

The deadline to apply is normally April 1 of the festival year. (Scholarships are suspended for 2020 due to fundraising constraints related to Covid 19.)

To apply, please fill out and submit the Pembroke Arts Festival Scholarship application (downloads as a PDF).

Applications must be submitted through the Naviance website or mailed to:
