The department has several scholarships available for students. Students are nominated by faculty for scholarships which recognize outstanding achievement, creative potential, scholarship and leadership.

Nominations by faculty will be reviewed by the Department of Art and scholarship recipients will be selected and notified by the end of March. Recipients will receive a monetary deduction from the students university tuition bill for the following academic year. Monetary amounts for certain scholarships frequently fluctuate because they are tied to an interest bearing account.
