Fred Ross 2021 Scholarship Announcement

SHMF offers congratulations to Xiuting Shi, a graduating senior at Fredericton High School who has been selected by an independent jury to receive an $8000 Fred Ross Scholarship. Ms. Shi plans to enter the University of Waterloo in September.  In selecting Ms. Shi, the jury stated “Xiuting Shi is a promising young artist with a distinctive evocative style.  Her portfolio reflects a heightened creativity and impressive technical skills.  Shi’s provocative artist statement as well as  her mature skill in rendering line, movement, form, color and light show great potential.  This jury highly recommends Ms. Shi for the 2021 renewable Fred Ross scholarship, believing that she has the passion and the talent to excel in post secondary education and career development.”

The Fred Ross scholarship is an enduring tribute to New Brunswick artist Fred Ross’s  lifetime commitment to  arts education and  mentorship.  The Board of Directors  is grateful to Julie Forgues, Jean Rooney and  Dan Steeves for their careful adjudication of all 2021 applications.
