Endowed Scholarships

College of Fine Arts student scholarships and awards are a vital way that generous alumni, friends, faculty, and patrons of the arts can support and encourage the next generation of scholars, artists, and creative leaders. 

The criteria for our scholarships cover a wide range of student attributes ranging including full/part-time, undergraduate/graduate, financial need, grade point average, geography, work/life experience, and community involvement. 

Awarding these scholarships is a celebration of our academic and community values in the College of Fine Arts and we invite enthusiastic friends and alumni to contribute, at any level, to these existing scholarships to ensure the future of our diverse and talented student body.
