WAA Scholarship Program
March is Youth Art Month and in celebration, The Wickford Art Association (WAA) will present its annual Scholarship Program awards to three Rhode Island public high school senior art students with a fourth award presented by the Rhode Island Art Educators Association.
Each Rhode Island public high school chooses one college-bound senior art student for consideration. The competition uses National Scholastic Standards overseen by the Rhode Island Art Educators Association. The four winning students will receive cash scholarships in the amounts of $2,500, $1,500, $1,000 and $500 to use towards college. Winners also receive a one year membership to WAA, an art exhibit in our gallery and space at the 56th Wickford Art Festival, ranked #5 fine art festival in the country, to exhibit and sell their artwork. This is an excellent, resume-building opportunity for college bound students!
Interested art students should speak with their art teachers about submitting their portfolio for consideration.

Completed applications may be submitted between February 14 and 28, 2018.
Please share with any college-bound senior art students currently enrolled in RI public high schools!
