The St. Johns Cultural Council is seeking applications for their Junior Recognizing Outstanding Women In The Arts (ROWITA) Fellowships. The fellowships are available to all graduating St. Johns County high school women (public, private or homeschooled) who are entering arts based programs of higher education to advance their creative development. Fellowship awards are a monetary award that can be up to $1000.

Applicants must have either applied or been accepted into in a BFA program, a summer institute/intensive, or an arts workshop in order to be considered.

The Junior ROWITA Fellowship was started in 2011 to help support graduating high school women develop their artistic skills through continued study and training.

There are three categories for the awards: Performing, Visual, and Literary Arts. In order to be eligible, candidates must have a 3.0 GPA, and acceptance into a college level arts program or summer institute. They must submit a letter of recommendation from their arts teacher; write a letter describing their relationship with their arts, and provide a DVD of their work. The applications are reviewed by a panel of past ROWITA recipients.

Deadline for applications is on the last day of February of each year. Applications must be emailed to hala@stjohnsculture.com, mailed, or delivered to the St. Johns Cultural Council Office located at 15 Old Mission Avenue, St. Augustine, FL 32084.
