ArtsNL and Equinor announce 2023 Equinor ArtsSmarts Scholarship recipient

ArtsNL and Equinor Canada have announced the 2023 Equinor ArtsSmarts Scholarship recipient.

The $2,500 is awarded to a Newfoundland and Labrador high school student who enrolls full-time in a degree or diploma program at a recognized publicly funded Canadian university, college, or post-secondary institution specific to education in the arts.

Gray Parsons of St. John’s has been awarded the Equinor ArtsSmarts Scholarship.

Melanie Martin, Executive Director of ArtsNL says "The scholarship will assist Gray’s post-secondary education at École nationale de cirque (National Circus School) in Montreal, Quebec, where he is studying aerial rope in the fall of 2023. We applaud Equinor’s ongoing commitment to foster the arts through this scholarship as part of our larger ArtsSmarts partnership with them."

A graduate of Holy Heart of Mary High School in St. John’s, Parsons was accepted to the National Circus School after a four-day audition in Montreal.
