The Arts and Cultural Alliance of Newport County is offering the Tinney Family Arts Scholarship of $2,000 in memory of the Tinney Family. The Tinney family is best known for building a Gold Coronation Coach that was designed by Donald Tinney in 1966. He also restored Belcourt Castle in Newport, created and restored stained glass windows, and also inspired students to learn many of the “lost arts”.
This scholarship is to be awarded to a graduating High School Senior who has demonstrated artistic talent and the ambition to strive for excellence. All areas of the Arts will be accepted and considered. It is the desire in giving this scholarship that the Tinney family’s protégé will cherish and perpetuate the Tinney legacy while making the most of his/her own inherent artistic abilities. Deadline is May 30th, 2018.
