The BGWP Awards Fund supports actual Black girls who paint. Each month, one girl between the ages of 6-18 will recieve the Girls Award, a $50 e-gift card to an art store for supplies. Each Spring and Fall semester, one student between the ages of 17-21 currently enrolled at least part-time in a visual arts program will receive the Student Award, a $750 academic award to help offset the cost of art supplies, program fees, food, academic expenses, etc. All award recipients will be highlighted on our website, marketing materials, and Mahyue Magazine.

*A portion of every membership fee goes towards the BGWP Award Fund, as this initiative is 100% funded by the BGWP community - members and don0rs. If you are interested in directly supporting the artistic pursuits of Black girl and teen painters across the globe, please consider donating and/or joining our membership! As our membership and funding grows, that number of e-gift cards and academic awards will increase. Let's be the change that we wish to see!
