Annual Friends of the Page-Walker Scholarship
The Friends’ Scholarship was established in 2012 to advance our mission of enriching the community by serving as guardians for the Page-Walker Arts & History Center, by advocating preservation of Cary historic sites, by archiving history and facilitating history education, and by promoting the cultural arts.
The $1000 award is given to a high school senior who is a Cary resident
, and may be used for any educational-related expenses. In addition, the recipient’s name will be displayed on a permanent plaque
at the Page-Walker Arts & History Center.
To be eligible, students must submit a 600-1,000 word essay on a local history topic
, along with an application and letter of recommendation from their high school faculty member or counselor.
Check back here in May 2021 for details on the specific history topic for 2021 and instructions for applying.
Past recipients of our scholarship are Redmond Self (2012), Kaly Alexandra Smith (2014), Emma Lopes (2017), Christina Grubes (2018), Madeline McLoughlin (2019), and Nina Kudlak (2020).
