SONIE MATHEW SCHOLARSHIP
On February 9, 2021 BlackRock lost a legacy and friend, Teaching Artist Sonie Mathew. Sonie touched the lives of over a thousand young people in his decade of service to BlackRock education programs who like him, share a passion for theater and music. Mr. Sonie understood the benefits of a performing arts education, lessons that could be applied for life.

This scholarship opportunity serves 75% of tuition fees for the Summer Youth Art Academy and the Counselor in Training Program. This scholarship is not applicable for the Sports Meets the Arts camp run in partnership with Maryland SoccerPlex.
If you have any questions about the scholarship, please email our Education Manager.
