Scholarships for Current Art Majors

Current undergraduate art majors (BS-Art, BFA, Pre-Art Ed and BS-Art Ed) may apply for Art Department scholarships.

The 2018-19 competition is now closed.

Scholarships for Incoming Art Freshmen & Transfers

As applicants receive their admission decisions, the Art Department will contact admitted art students with an invitation to apply for an Incoming Art Major Scholarship. Eligibility requires that recipients declare either BS-Art (which is also pre-BFA) or Pre-Art Education during Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR) and participate in the Contemporary Art and Artists First Year Interest Group (Art FIG) in their first year.

Transferring art students who’ve already completed their art foundations courses are not required to participate in the Art FIG, but must declare an undergraduate art major during Transfer SOAR.
