On May 13, 2017 the Brevard Watercolor society awarded George Gregory, Olivia Pickering, Maddie Roth and Kira Chinapen with a gift package and a $500 scholarship check to be spent on art supplies, art classes or general needs of the students to help them grow as local watercolor artists. Each scholarship candidate is sponsored by their art teacher. Following the satisfaction of qualifications, the Brevard Watercolor Society's Board of Directors determines via an essay whether a student may be accepted as a recipient for the scholarship program.
The funding for the scholarship comes from the Brevard Watercolor Society and works as a partnership with Eastern Florida State College. Scholarships are also offered at the high school level.
