Since the Young Artists Scholarship Program was launched in 2000, Gualala Arts has encouraged local talent with the award of more than 30 scholarships, totaling more than $35,000. Awards go to young and talented graduating seniors with a strong commitment and a record of achievement and distinction in their fields of art. Eligibility also includes local residency and firm, realistic plans to further a career in the arts. Applicants submit a written application, school records, letters of support, and for the finalists, bring examples of their work to an interview.
"This scholarship is a wonderful way to encourage young artists," said Nancy Kyle, Adelle Platt and Hal Fogel of the Gualala Arts Awards Committee, "and to fulfill Gualala Arts' mission. The scholarships help to support the career development of our local talent by first, recognizing and honoring a young person's commitment to a chosen field of art, and second, by helping with the considerable expenses of further study."
