MUNCIE, IN– Psi Iota Xi, Alpha Chapter, has awarded Cornerstone Center for the Arts, 520 W. Main, $3,500 for scholarships for students whose families are unable to pay for classes due to financial hardship.

This grant, said Allison Bell, Cornerstone President and CEO, will allow students to “fulfill their dreams of arts, dance and theatre enrichment.”

“The number of students needing financial aid has increased in the last two years,” Bell said. This grant will help significantly, she said. “We are very grateful.”

As a result of this grant, 17 students will be able to take classes, Bell said.

Cornerstone Center for the Arts offers opportunities for creative expression for all through community and rental spaces in a historic setting.  Thousands of area residents attend events, wedding and civic events, in addition to taking classes in art, dance and music. Cornerstone is home to the The Masterworks Chorale and Orchestra Indiana.  For additional information go to or call 765-281-9503.
