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.  The 2024 Scholarship essay topic is The Impact of Growth on the Culture of the Cary Community.

Completed applications are due by May 22, 2024.  The scholarship recipient will be notified by May 30, 2024.
