The Wellington Art Society is now accepting applications for its 2021 scholarship program.
In 2001, the Wellington Art Society Scholarship Program was established to provide scholarships to talented young artists living and attending school in Palm Beach County for art-related expenses and college tuition costs. In 2018, the scholarship program added the opportunity for Florida Atlantic University students to apply for a scholarship in their sophomore or junior years. Since 2001, the society has awarded more than $100,000 to students.
Applications for multiple awards of $1,500 scholarships in the 2021 year opened on Jan. 12 and closes on March 19. Winners will be notified by April 6 with presentations (in person or virtually) taking place May 12.
For consideration, students must apply via www.callforentry.org and register online. There is no charge to register.
Once registered, applicants should search for the Wellington Art Society Scholarship and complete the online application. Up to six images of the student’s 2D or 3D work may be uploaded in JPG format only, with each image no smaller than 1920 pixels on the longest side. The resolution for each image must be 72 ppi/dpi (standard web resolution) and each file size must not exceed 5 MB. In addition, applicants must upload their unofficial high school transcript in a Microsoft Word or PDF file format.
