Since 2005, The New Hampshire Chapter of the Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA/NH) has awarded an annual scholarship of $1,000 to a female NH resident majoring in the visual arts at a NH college or university and showing artistic merit and promise. The scholarship also awards a one-year membership in WCA/NH, which includes access to exhibition opportunities and other programs. High School students are not eligible. You must be currently enrolled in a college or university. NO Power Point presentations, photo prints, computer printouts, or slides will be accepted.
WCA/NH receives over a dozen applicants from across the state each year, and their portfolios are judged by WCA/NH Board members representing different disciplines in the visual arts.
Each year’s Annual Scholarship Program begins in February and submissions are accepted throughout the Spring. Judging takes place in April. Funds for the annual scholarship are raised through donations and our "Notecard Project".
