Waterville Area Art Society
We will be updating the information for the 2023 school year soon!

One of the priorities of the Waterville Area Art Society is to encourage local students in their art education.  On February 4, 1993, the Society voted to give an annual scholarship to a local graduating senior displaying artistic talent toward pursuing further artistic study.  The first scholarship awarded in May was for $100 and succeeding scholarships have been raised to $1,000.

Art Scholarships Available

The Waterville Area Art Society (WAAS) is currently accepting applications for a $1000
scholarship to be given to a graduating high school senior who plans to major or minor
in visual arts, performing arts or music.


It is open to students from the following schools:
Waterville H.S, Winslow H.S., Lawrence H.S., Messalonskee H.S., Erskine Academy,
Maine Arts Academy, Mid-Maine Technical Center and Temple Academy.


Nominations must be submitted by May 1, 2022.

Detailed guidelines have been sent to area high schools. Teachers of these arts are
requested to submit nominations and include: student contact information; recommendation; information about the artistic ability and need of the student(s); and three photos or video clips of student work.

Previous winners and former applicants are also eligible to apply with a former high
school or college teacher’s nomination and materials.
