Department Scholarships

A limited number of merit-based department scholarships are awarded each year to incoming freshmen and transfer students based on the quality of their portfolio and application materials. Students do not need to apply for these scholarships; all applicants are automatically considered for these awards.

The department also awards merit-based scholarships to selected continuing students based on their performance in coursework, personal creative growth, excellent citizenship in the department, and strong academic standing. There is no application for these scholarships; students will be informed if they’ve been selected for one of these awards.

Competitive scholarships are also awarded each year to fund travel and tuition expenses for summer study programs such as Ox-Bow and the department’s Learning Tuscany program.
