James C. Lentz Art Scholarship

A WSI grant from the James C. Lentz Scholarship Fund for the purpose of providing each year an annual scholarship to a graduating high school senior who will be majoring in fine arts or art education at his/her chosen university.

Jieun and Paula

In 2017, WSI awarded one scholarship to an exceptional high school senior. Ji Eun Yu of Carmel High School was this year’s recipient and is currently attending Yale University. In addition, Ms. Yu joined the Watercolor Society of Indiana and entered this year’s Juried Exhibition. She was awarded the Theodore M. Englehart Honorary Award.

This grant allows us to fulfill one of the missions of the Watercolor Society of Indiana.  Article II in our Constitution  states the following as one of our missions: “…to encourage the study of watercolor by art students and others engaged in the visual arts.”  In keeping with our mission, the Watercolor Society of Indiana has made a commitment to offer a $1000 scholarship to a high school senior who intends to pursue a degree in fine arts or art education.  The Watercolor Society has long been committed to furthering the goal of providing art education to the community. Many of our members teach art either in a school system or in a private setting.
