2023 JOAN O’BYRNE Scholarship Award (EXTENDED to 5/13/23)

Organized in 1949 with Margaret Mattocks as its founding President, Seattle Co-Arts was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1950. Seattle Co-Arts was founded primarily to encourage creativity and develop originality in dedicated artists.

In 1988, Seattle Co-Arts honored its founding President by voting to award annual art scholarships to deserving student artists who are currently engaged in furthering their art education towards a career.

  • To be considered, applicants must be currently enrolled in a comprehensive 2-to-4-year fine art program with an emphasis on 2-dimensional work and have completed at least one year of that program by June 30, 2023.
  • The program must be in King, Pierce, or Snohomish County.
  • Applicants must provide all requested information as well as a resume, letter of recommendation from a current instructor, and five examples of your completed 2-dimensional, hand created fine artwork.
  • The scholarship recipient will be expected to attend (via Zoom) an interview session and our organization’s June 28th Zoom meeting to accept the award.
