Hull Artist Scholarship Program

Dianna M. Chouinard Memorial Scholarship

It is with a great sense of pride and long tradition that we honor Dianna M. Chouinard, one of the founders of and an active participant in the creation of Hull Artists in 1996.

Most Hull Artists live on the South Shore and about sixty percent of the membership resides in Hull.  With so many of our Artists having grown up and attended local schools, we are pleased to award the Dianna M. Chouinard Art Memorial Scholarship in the sum of $500 to a Hull resident, or the child of a qualified Hull Artist, who is presently a senior in high school.
