After 27 years, The Frederic Whitaker and Eileen Monaghan Whitaker Foundation (The Whitaker Foundation) is proud to announce the expansion of its mission to include a nationwide Art Scholarship Program to educate future art professionals. The Art Scholarship Program is being established to help art students meet the diverse educational needs of today’s professional art and museum world. The Whitaker Foundation intends to support art students with a special emphasis on watercolor and museum studies.
Through the application process facilitated by The Whitaker Foundation, students are required to gain knowledge of the Whitakers’ works through their submitted essays or watercolor paintings. Once the students’ works are evaluated, winners will be selected and the scholarships will be awarded starting in the Fall semester of 2014.
Recognition by the Whitaker Foundation will aid students on their career path and give the winners not only a financial but also a competitive edge. The Foundation increases the winners public exposure by connecting them with national art schools, museums, institutions and by exhibiting their artwork on the Foundation’s website and through social media.
Contributing to the Whitaker Foundation Scholarship Program, you as a donor become part of a long tradition of supporting the arts and American Watercolor across America. This support will enable us to reach the widest possible audience and increase the number and amount of scholarships awarded.
The Whitaker Foundation accepts your gift with great appreciation on behalf of talented, deserving students nationwide. The Foundation is a 501 (c)3 charitable organization. Donations are tax deductible and excludable from your taxable estate. Please check with your tax advisor.
