Scholarships and Awards in the School of Art

If you need help paying for art school, we’re here to assist. You can receive merit- and need-based aid through our scholarship opportunities. All scholarships are awarded through the Student Financial Aid, so applicants must have a FAFSA on file in the Student Financial Aid office prior to application. 

You must be registered full-time for the semester for which the scholarship is awarded. Fall scholarships are awarded in the Spring semester and Spring Scholarships are awarded in the following Fall semester or academic year.

Scholarship Application Deadline: March 16, 2015, 5pm - Deadline Extended
