Established in 2007, the Kwi Am Choi Exhibition Scholarship is an annual award of $2,000 that recognizes an emerging BC artist between the ages of 18 and 30, and is designed to fund the costs of mounting a solo exhibition of their work at the Port Moody Arts Centre. This initiative provides students currently enrolled in, or recent graduates of, Fine Arts programs at recognized post-secondary institutions in Canada with the opportunity to display their work in a publicly funded gallery, receive curatorial mentorship, and network with other artists and art professionals.


Applicant Criteria:
• Between 18 and 30 years of age
• Enrolled in a Fine Arts program in a recognized post-secondary institution, or a recent graduate of a Fine Arts program from a recognized Canadian post-secondary institution in Canada (within 2 years of graduation)

• A resident of British Columbia

Application Deadline: November 18, 2018
