Scholarships

Stone Scholarship

Each year, the PPSCC Stone Scholarship provides funds for up to three qualified PPSCC members to study with an award-winning pastel instructor in a hands-on workshop environment (which may be virtual). The program is available to all paid PPSCC members.

The fund enables the three recipients to participate in one of the following:

  • Winter One-Day Workshop (WOW) – 2 funded seats
  • One 2-day Masters Workshop – 1 funded seat

The selection committee will review and select recipients based on potential and interest in participating in a PPSCC workshop. Recipients will be announced during the summer For Pastels Only Awards Ceremony.

How Do I Apply?

• Complete application form.

• Submit 5 examples of artwork via email. Work must have been done in the past 2 years, not done under the supervision of an instructor, and must be 80% soft pastel.

• Submit one-page applicant statement explaining why you are applying including your journey as an artist, your aspirations and how you will benefit from a workshop.

Email the completed application form and 5 jpgs of your work to [email protected] by June 29, 2024.

Named after the PPSCC former president and founding member Barbara Stone, this program honors the PPSCC’s interest in encouraging and promoting the development of skills in the pastel medium. The scholarship program was initiated and generously funded for five years by Barbara Stone’s dear friend, Nancy Remaley. Our hope is that this wonderful member benefit will continue far beyond the five years, creating an ongoing scholarship fund through future donations and fundraisers.
