John Stewart Fine Arts Memorial Endowed Scholarship

The John Stewart Fine Arts Memorial Endowed Scholarship was established in 1999 in memory of Dr. John Stewart, professor and Dean of Arts and Letters at the Eastfield Campus. Dr. Stewart’s greatest joy came when he was able to witness a student’s discovery of full life through the unique experiences found in the Arts. He believed not only in the beauties and disciplines of the Arts; but was convinced that we become better persons by our participation in and understanding of theater, painting, dance and/or music.
