Nancy E. Davis Memorial Scholarship

The Nancy E. Davis Memorial Scholarship has been established in the memory of Nancy E. Davis, a dedicated art teacher. Mrs. Davis taught in the Guilderland Central School District at Farnsworth Middle School for 33 years. She brought a passion for art to her family, friends, colleagues and students. It was Mrs. Davis’ wish that this scholarship in the amount of $1000.00 be awarded to a student who is “passionate about art and visually inventive” and whose life has been enriched by his/her art experiences within the Guilderland Central Schools.

The Nancy E. Davis Memorial Scholarship consists of two $1000.00 awards. For each award, applicants are required to submit a completed application along with a digital portfolio on a CD or DVD. A committee made up of  art teachers and the K-12 Instructional Administrator for Art will meet to review applications.
