The Bluebird Foundation is now accepting applications for Fall scholarships for kids who have interests in the arts.

Whether it be music, dance, art, theater, or whatever but must take advanced training toward their goal. That is what the scholarship is for to help the student to move forward in their learning and advance their skills.

The Bluebird Foundation has a few Scholarships available for the fall, but the big one is:

The Audrey A. Lundeen Bluebird Scholarship

Named after Tracy Lundeen's Mother

This is for current high school seniors who plan to go further in dance, theater, or music (vocal or instrumental) in college or some other advanced arts training beyond high school. They don't have to plan to major in any of the arts like dance, theater, or music but must plan to do advanced study/training to keep the arts a part of their lives. A $2,000 scholarship will be awarded to one senior to use for his/her advanced training in the arts.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
