Art Scholarship Fund Flyer 2024.jpg

What started as a 43-year GNBAC tradition has blossomed into a movement to help young area artists with their dreams of pursuing art!


This scholarship fund was inspired by many past honorees who were Arts Champions. In 2022, our dear friends of GNBAC and true advocates for the Arts, Mr. Bennie Walter Bock II and Roberta Elliott, passed away, encouraging us to carry on their mission.

Bennie's amazing professional journey working in the Texas Legislature and keeping the Arts alive in New Braunfels inspired us to continue that mission of advocating and encouraging young artists

to pursue their passion.

Roberta was raised on stage and back stage and became a true pioneer of community theatre in New Braunfels. 

Area high school seniors who study the Arts and hope to pursue Art in college, as a profession, or in education are encouraged to apply--this GNBAC Art Scholarship Fund was established with the intention of assisting those who need a little help with that dream.


Thanks to the many 2023 applicants--

3 lucky recipients were voted on and presented

with their awards and a $1,000 check

at our June Art Mixer at Krause's Cafe. 

Congratulations, Artists!
