Faithful to its educational and artistic mission, the Boghossian Foundation awards annual prizes to students completing their artistic studies. Winners, selected on the basis of their end-of-year examinations, receive the sum of 2,000€.

This approach follows the partnerships with the Antwerp Academy and ArtContest.
