Wickford Art Association's annual Scholarship Program Competition selects three of Rhode Island's top public high school artistic seniors going to college in the fall to receive generous cash awards with an additional award presented by RI Art Education Association.
Plus, the top three Scholarship Program award winners and RI Art Education Association's award winner all receive their own 1-week gallery exhibit at WAA. The four winners also receive an invitation to exhibit in the 58th Wickford Art Festival, a nationally ranked, juried fine art festival, on the weekend of July 11 and 12, 2020. Participation is an excellent resume-building opportunity.
All students that submit Scholarship Program applications receive a one-year student membership to WAA.
