The Fine Arts Talent Award (FATA), the Fine Arts Talent Enhancement Award (FATEA), and the Fine Arts Talent Trustees Award (FATTA) application priority date is January 15. The awards are reserved for incoming first-year students who earn admission to a Studio Art major, an Art History major, or both in the School of Art + Design (SOA+D) within the College of Fine Arts (COFA). These talent-based scholarships are awarded on the potential of individual students, as determined by the Scholarship Committee. Renewal of each scholarship after the first year is automatic for 6 additional semesters provided the awardee consistently registers for 15 credits each semester and maintains a 3.0 or higher accumulative GPA.

Please note that applicants only need to submit ONE application through SlideRoom to be considered for all three types of awards. The $10 SlideRoom application fee will be waived for all applicants who submit their materials by the priority date of January 15. After January 15, the fee may be waived on a case-by-case basis through the COFA. Students who intend to double major in Studio Art or Art History and also in another college outside of COFA must list Studio Art/Art History on the University application in order to be eligible for these awards. A second major can be added upon matriculation. FATA/FATEA award recipients may be residents or non-residents of Ohio, while only non-residents are eligible for the FATTA.
