The students who will be receiving scholarships this year are Isabella Mayman of Fusion Academy, Stella Martinelli of the G-Star School of the Arts and Jakira Julbe of Royal Palm Beach High School.

The Wellington Art Society has been supporting the advancement of the arts in the community since 1981 with the intent to encourage young artists to pursue careers in the fine arts, provide programming that expands art in public places and make art accessible within the community daily.

The scholarship program was established in 2001 to provide scholarships to talented young artists for art-related college and university expenses and tuition costs.

Over the past 22 years, the Wellington Art Society has awarded more than $120,000 in scholarships to some of the brightest and most creative students within the community. Past recipients have gone on to become educators, illustrators, authors, curators, artistic directors, professional artists and art advocates.

To support the scholarship program, the organization relies solely upon money raised from donations, membership dues, monthly raffles, artist exhibitions, municipal art shows and commissions. Help support the program with a tax-deductible donation at
