Scholarship & Awards

The Duxbury Art Association is proud to offer several opportunities for artists young and old:

The DAA Student Scholarship – This student scholarship (a value of up to $250 each) will be awarded to students between the ages of 3.5 and 18 who are interested in taking a DAA art class at the Ellison Center for the Arts. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and awarded prior to the beginning of each semester.

The Katherine Smit Scholarship – Women, 18 years and older, are invited to apply for this scholarship supporting those interested in pursuing art classes through the Duxbury Art Association. A generous anonymous donor has given the funds to allow two individual scholarships per year for either an art class or workshop to be awarded.

The Robert A. St. Pierre Award – The Duxbury Art Association grants the Robert A. St. Pierre Award annually to a high school senior who plans on further studies in the visual arts.  An award of $1000 is given to a student who plans further study in the visual arts at an art school or other college, or through an organized program of art study; including an apprenticeship or private study with an artist.  The St. Pierre Scholarship is awarded on the basis of talent, motivation and serious intent.
