The Helen Bumpus Gallery $250 Annual Scholarship is awarded to a graduating Duxbury High School senior to encourage further study in the visual arts. While enrollment in a college degree program is not required, the study must be part of a recognized/certified course.

Applications for the Helen Bumpus Gallery Scholarship are available from the Duxbury High School Guidance Department.

All applicants are asked to write a brief description of their art training, interests and future plans. Images of three current pieces of artwork also are required; links to a personal website or Instagram page are welcome.

The Board of Directors of Helen Bumpus Gallery reviews each scholarship application. Selection of the awardee is based on information and images provided by the student, as well as comments received from the candidate’s teachers.

The Helen Bumpus Gallery Annual Scholarship is presented during the annual Duxbury High School Awards Night.


 The Board of Directors presents the annual Conant Award in special recognition of an  artist whose exemplary work was exhibited in the Gallery during the previous year.   This award was established by a donation from Esther Conant to honor her friend, Helen Bumpus.
