Wickford Art Association’s ‘Steven Klein Scholarship Program Competition’ selects five of Rhode Island’s top public high school artistic seniors going to college in the fall of 2023 to receive prestigious cash awards. This scholarship program is made possible through the generous support of the Steven Klein family and other donors who believe in the importance of sustaining young artists who go on to pursue studies in the arts. Also a big thank you for the support from the Rhode Island Art Education Association.

The top five award winners all have a spotlight gallery exhibit at the Wickford Art Association at 36 Beach Street, North Kingstown from April 5 – April 15. A closing reception will take place on April 15 at 4PM.

Winners also receive an invitation to exhibit in the 60th Wickford Art Festival, a nationally ranked, juried fine art festival!

All students that submit applications will receive a 2023 student membership to WAA.
