Add to calendar

The Stephen D. Paine Scholarship is designed to support students who are entering their final year in studio art programs at colleges in the city of Boston. As young artists conclude their undergraduate studies, the Boston Art Dealers Association (BADA) would like to extend financial assistance in order to support their commitment to the making of art.

To be eligible, applicants must qualify for financial aid by the school (i.e. you filled out FAFSA and your school deemed you eligible for loans, grants, scholarships, or other financial aid). Applicants also must be entering their final year in a studio art program or studio art major and may be working in any visual art medium.

It is expected that available funds will permit two (2) scholarships of $4,000 to be awarded each year in the form of cash grants to the recipients. Up to four (4) prizes of $1,000 will be awarded as honorable mentions. In addition, all artists receiving funds will be invited to exhibit work in the annual Stephen D. Paine Scholarship Exhibition.

Applications must be submitted by no later than October 1, 2020 at midnight. Applications will be reviewed anonymously by a juror who will be encouraged to make awards based on the recognition of talent and the promise for making important work in the future. The jurying process will be managed by the Boston Foundation, and awards will be announced toward the end of the year.

Questions about the Scholarship or application process can be directed to Anna Jen, the Boston Foundation's Program Associate for Arts & Culture, at
