Attached please find the announcement/application form for Eastern Connecticut State University’s Summer Arts Institute 2017 that will be held July 10-27. This is an educational program in which 15 Willimantic high school students will have the opportunity to earn three free college credits for participating in a theatre/arts course at Eastern. Students selected for this program do not need to be “actors,” “dancers,” or “artists,” but should have an interest in learning about the arts and are motivated, mature, responsible, and cooperative team members. The application deadline is May 19, 2017. We would greatly appreciate it if you would share the application with any students you believe would be interested in this course and who would be a good fit with the program. After applications are collected and reviewed by Eastern professors, we will schedule interviews with the students at each of the high schools in Willimantic.
