The Richard Beards Education Fund is for Oxford High School seniors furthering their education in the arts and music. The scholarships are awarded to OAHS seniors pursuing further education in the Arts (music, performance, architecture and fine arts). We hope to grow this program to include students in neighboring school districts. Dr. Richard Beards (1936-2013) was a founding member of the Oxford Arts Alliance, established in 2008. He was a promoter of the first OxAA Scholarship program offered to Oxford Area High School seniors in June 2013. The Oxford Arts Alliance Board of Directors has renamed these scholarships to The Richard Beards Scholarship, continuing Richard’s legacy of education.
The EMERGE Scholarship Fund
“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” - Albert Einstein
In the shadow of COVID-19, a growing number of our academy students and their families are finding themselves in a difficult financial situation due to so many workers being furloughed or out of work. Through the study of art and music, we can create healthy, thought-provoking, and expressive avenues in our diversifying community. Unfortunately, access to musical education in Oxford, PA is difficult to afford for many families. As the arts and culture leader in Oxford, we want to provide students with the opportunity to further their artistic or musical education regardless of their ability to pay.
Through the EMERGE Scholarship Fund, The Oxford Arts Alliance continues to establish a foundation for students to focus on what matters most, their creative and artistic drive.
Tuition Assistance is available for those students who show promise in the arts and music, however cannot financially afford the full price of lessons/classes. There are a number of students who begin lessons or classes with the OxAA, working hard, practicing and showing promise. Due to a financial change in their family, these students are at risk of not continuing lessons. Our tuition assistance programs provides just that, tuition assistance so these students can continue their love of learning.
