Art History Abroad Scholarship Winner Announced

15 May 2018 - 15:28 BY The Arts Society

We are delighted to announce the winner of The Art History Abroad Scholarship for 2018 is Noël Masal.

Here is a bit about Noël in her own words:

“I’m currently a senior Visual Art major at a performing arts high school in New York City. In the fall, I will attend Tufts University and double major in Environmental Science and Sustainability and Visual Art.

I happened upon Art History Abroad and the scholarship one day last summer. I had been doing an environmental summer internship where I worked as a field researcher in a marsh. It definitely was not the best experience and I was determined to have a better summer next year, especially before college. I take Italian in school so I always wanted to go to Italy and speak the language.

I searched for summer abroad opportunities for teens to go to Italy and I found Art History Abroad, along with the Northern Italy II video. It looked like so much fun and the prompt for the scholarship looked very interesting to write about.

I saw the email that I had won the scholarship at 7 am when I woke up for school and for the rest of the day I felt untouchable. A very nice way to wake up, indeed! I am completely honored and overjoyed to have won the scholarship and I can already tell that this will be an experience I’ll never forget.”

The Art History Abroad Scholarship is an annual award open to 16-19 year olds. The prize is a place on a two week Art History Abroad (AHA) summer course in Italy. 

The scholarship was established by Art History Abroad in 1998 in memory of past President of NADFAS (now The Arts Society), Sir Trenchard Cox, after whom it was originally named.
