Rising Star Scholarship
The Scholarship is awarded annually to a current, recently graduated college student or a young artist up to the age of 29 who has consistently pursued a visual art career and is currently producing work. The grant is comprised of an all-expense paid participation in the Letchworth Arts and Crafts Show presented by the Arts Council for Wyoming County, significant publicity and a solo exhibition in the following year. The student will also receive FREE booth space at the Annual Letchworth Arts and Crafts Show and Sale. This is a wonderful opportunity for a young artist to sell and make connections that will help promote them and their art.
This scholarship is valued at $10000.00; it covers the cost of the registration, booth fee, lunch for the three days of the festival, a basic tent and a $200.00 stipend for materials used to prepare for the solo exhibition in January.
