Scholarship Application

Scholarships are based upon academic achievement and evidence of artistic merit. Eligibility is contingent upon enrollment in at least 12 credit hours per semester and a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0. Scholarships and awards are determined each spring semester by a committee of visual arts and design faculty who conduct a portfolio review of incoming and continuing students during a Scholarship Day competition.
