Background on the Winston Scholarship in Art

The scholarship is an annual award in honor of the late Naomi Rabb Winston, a distinguished artist and mother of Shirley Rabb Winston. The National Society of Arts and Letters bestows the scholarship on young visual artists, aged 16 to 22. Applicants must demonstrate exceptional talent and promise of future success.

The scholarship funds are for private study, special training or personal advancement in the applicant’s chosen art fields. The funds can be used for college tuition and required art supplies, but not for housing or travel. Scholarship funds are sent to the institution, teacher or program the recipient selects. Scholarship recipients have 15 months to use the funds. Applicants who have not received a Winston Scholarship in Art may apply as often as their age allows. Winston Scholarship recipients may not reapply for the award, but are eligible to participate in other NSAL competitions.
