Art Scholarship

Sponsored by the Pastel Society of the West Coast

The Pastel Society of the West Coast is pleased to offer an Art Scholarship to be awarded to a current year graduating senior in high school, Junior College or up to a junior in a four year college or art school that is interested in the further study of art.

Please forward the PSWC Scholarship Application (in left column – pdf) to any interested students so that they may prepare to submit the form and pictures of their art work by the deadline of March 31st. This early date means we can get the information back to the winner before the end of the school term with perhaps a presentation if graduating from high school. PSWC would be honored to present such an award in person, if so desired and within our means to attend.

Scholarship Competition Annual Deadline: MARCH 3l

Who is eligible: Any graduating senior in high school, Junior College or up to a junior in a four year college or art school that is interested in the further study of art.

What: Any subject matter, any medium. While we are a representational society, we are open to receive more abstract work of high quality. Photos of your work should be forwarded to the Chairperson noted in the sidebar on the left along with the necessary letters of recommendation as required in our application.

Judging: Work will be judged by the PSWC Board members and the winner will be announced before the end of the school term.
