Scholarships and Awards 

Pratt Fine Arts Center is excited to announce the return of our scholarships and awards for 2023! This upcoming cycle is the largest amount of funding we've offered to date - with 17 scholarships, totaling $49,700. As we revitalize and rebuild our local arts & culture sector and creative community, it is our hope that these resources provide emerging and experienced visual artists with the tools, access, and space needed to expand their artistic practice. Special thanks to our generous donors and partner organizations for your support in providing these opportunities: Bernie Funk; friends and family of Lillian Yeh; Mary & Gary Molyneaux; National Endowment for the Arts; Jon and Mary Shirley Foundation; Pohlman Knowles Studio; RBC Wealth Management; Seattle Print Arts; and Society of Inclusive Blacksmiths.
