Wellington At Society 2019 Scholarship Recipients

The Wellington Art Society (WAS) has been supporting the advancement of art in the Palm Beach County community since 1981.  In 2001 the Wellington Art Society Scholarship Program was established to provide scholarships to talented young artists living and attending school in Palm Beach County for art related expenses and college tuition costs. In 2018 the scholarship program added the opportunity for Florida Atlantic University (FAU) students to apply for a scholarship in their Sophomore or Junior year.  Since 2001, the WAS is proud to have awarded over $100,000 to students within our community.  

Applications for multiple awards of $1,500 scholarships in the 2021 year will open on January 12 and close on March 19.  Winners will be notified by April 6 with presentation (in person or virtually) taking place May 12.

The Wellington Art Society presented eight art scholarships at its annual Scholarship Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, April 10 at the Wellington Community Center. The awards were presented to graduating seniors in Palm Beach County who are planning a college major in visual arts. The evening featured a meet-and-greet, and scholarship recipients showed their artwork.

Recently WAS announced two art scholarship winners, Jillian Tarini from Dreyfoos School of the Arts and Keyi Che from The Kings Academy. Each year WAS members and WAS Scholarship Chair, Lynn Doyal, review application submissions from art students at local high schools and universities. Out of this years submissions, Tarini and Che were selected due to excellence in arts and academics as well as artist career goals. 

Congratulations to this years winners!
