5th Annual AKF Scholarship Competition


AKF is looking for creative work from MassArt students to exhibit in our Boston office. The artwork will be on display for one year (May 2020 - May 2021).

Finalists will be chosen from submitted works and notified mid-April 2020. Selected works will be brought to AKF in late April. All finalists, AKF members, and AKF clients will be invited to view the pieces and enjoy beverages and hors d’oeuvres at a gallery-style exhibition on May 7, 2020.

At the exhibit, a panel will view all the pieces and select two winners. Each winner will receive a $2,500 scholarship for their tuition at MassArt! This year marks our 5th Annual Exhibition, with AKF donating a total of $20,000 in scholarships.
