The Mount Pleasant Artists Guild is seeking applicants for a scholarship worth up to $1,500 for a qualified high school senior who lives east of the Cooper River.

Applicants should be seeking an undergraduate degree in an art-related field beginning this fall and reside in East Cooper. It doesn't matter where applicants attend high school. "East Cooper" includes Mount Pleasant, Awendaw, McClellanville, Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island and Daniel Island.

The deadline to apply is March 21, and judges reserve the right to split the $1,500 award.

Applications will be available at East Cooper high schools, on the guild's website or by contacting the Guild scholarship chair at (803) 606-2029.
