Our Scholarship awards are intended to aid students who have a close connection to Munds Park, maintain high scholastic grade averages, and demonstrate leadership qualities.


The intent of the Pinewood Players Scholarship is to promote education in all fields related to Performing Arts: Theater, Music, Dance, Technical Fields such as lighting, sound, scene design, and as an educator in any of these areas.

Students who attended at least two Pinewood Players Drama Camps are now eligible to apply for the PWP Scholarship to focus on disciplines other than the arts. The expectation is that a successful candidate will complete appropriate coursework regardless of the higher education discipline they choose to pursue.


Pinewood Players will award up to two scholarships of $2000 each to the most qualified applicants each year. Preference will be given to graduating high school seniors; however, college students can be considered.
