In 2010, Heiruspecs joined forces with the Saint Paul Central High School Foundation to create the Heiruspecs Scholarship. The scholarship is a chance for us to give back to the excellent high school where we formed in 1997.
Each year since 2010, three deserving young people have been awarded scholarships. As of May 2015 Heiruspecs has provided $18,000 in scholarships (and one violin) to graduating Central students.
Heiruspecs Scholarship recipients are seniors graduating from Central who:
- have demonstrated dedication to the arts in any form
- strive for continued artistic growth and success beyond high school, either through a planned major/minor in any subject related to the arts or through demonstrable outside artistic experiences not directly tied to college coursework
- are pursuing some form of higher education
- show a desire to contribute to their communities
Most years we enlist the help of some of our close friends to stage a benefit concert to help maintain the scholarship fund. But that only gets us part of the way there. Please consider helping Heiruspecs support young people, art, and our community by contributing to the Heiruspecs Scholarship Fund.
Donations can also be made via check, payable to:
St. Paul Central High School Foundation
P.O. Box 8082
St. Paul, MN 55108
Please include “Heiruspecs Scholarship” on the memo line of the check.
Heiruspecs is pleased and grateful to be partnering with the Saint Paul Central High School Foundation[link to http://centralhighschoolfoundation.org/], a 501(c)(3) non-profit, which functions as the fiscal agent for this scholarship effort.
