Virginia F. Sapienza Scholarship

The Virginia F. Sapienza Scholarship was established to support a student who is actively engaged in his/her/their art, as evidenced by relevant performance, display and/or publication endeavors, while attending MassBay Community College. This award is for students who are serious about their art, not necessarily attempting to earn a living by it, and will be able to show examples to MassBay faculty of their public, or attempts at public, work. Virginia F. Sapienza was a long-time dedicated music professor at MassBay Community College.
