Scholarships are awarded annually by the Art Department to students within its programs. Students apply for all available scholarships at one time. Winners are selected by Department faculty, either through a portfolio review or paper submission process. Application forms and information about applying can be found at the Art Department blog.
Some scholarships are need-based and in addition to the Departmental application, require a FAFSA (U.S. Department of Education's Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Click here for the FAFSA website.
