- Scholarship applications are due Friday, March 13, 2020.
- Scholarship awards are based on Family Financial Information, Portfolio, and GPA.
- Scholarship students must attend the full 5-day program for college credit.
Summer of Art scholarships are available to students who, for financial reasons, would not otherwise be able to attend. Awards are based on family financial information, portfolio, and grade point average. Due to limited funding, scholarships are only available for U.S. citizens. Unless otherwise stated, awards can be used toward tuition only and cannot be applied toward supplies or other expenses.
A limited number of merit-based scholarships may also be available.
A complete scholarship application must include all required items (see below), and be received by Friday, March 13. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applicants will be notified of the results as soon as award decisions have been made.
Do I need to submit a $400 deposit if I'm applying for a scholarship?
If your attendance is contingent upon receiving a scholarship award, you are not required to submit the $400 deposit. You are only required to complete the scholarship application at this time.
If you plan to attend the program regardless of whether a scholarship is granted, please complete a registration form and submit the $400 non-refundable deposit to ensure your place in the program. Full-tuition scholarship recipients will be refunded the $400 deposit.
