The Wellington Art Society is accepting applications for several $1,000 art scholarships to be awarded to graduating seniors who live and attend high school in Palm Beach County.
The scholarships are available to students planning a college major in visual arts. Online application information has been sent to all art teachers and guidance counselors, but students are invited to apply online at www.youjudgeit.org/was. The application deadline is March 1.
To be eligible, students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in visual arts and an overall GPA of 2.0 and complete at least three art classes. The application must include an artist statement and career goals along with up to six JPG photographs of their art work. Also required is a letter of recommendation from a faculty member and an unofficial transcript of the student.
The Wellington Art Society Scholarship Fund was established in 2001 and has provided many talented young artists with money for their art-related expenses, such as art or photographic supplies, books or tuition for visual arts classes. Proceeds from the society’s art exhibitions, Art Fest on the Green and the Whole Foods Market solo art exhibits help support the scholarship fund. The Wellington Art Society is a nonprofit charitable organization. For more info., visit www.wellingtonartsociety.org.
