Department of Art Student Awards 2018

Published November 16, 2017

The Department of Art gives a number of awards to Studio Art students whose work demonstrates exceptional achievement. This spring, the department will offer 33 awards ranging from $250 to $1000.


Students submit one well-designed application in one of the following categories: BA, BFA, MFA. Students will then be considered for all of the awards for which you are eligible. Students must be currently enrolled in the Studio Art major and be in good academic standing.


The award submission portal on will open on November 20. The submission deadline is MLK Day (January 15) at 11:59 pm.


You will need just one application – make it great! Here’s how: • Develop a concise yet compelling artist’s statement 150 to 400 words in length.
NOTE: If you are applying for an Ann Kirn Scholarship (a $1000 award), you must include a thoughtful description of the role that design plays in your studio practice.

• Select the five to eight (5 – 8) images that best represent your studio practice. Be sure that your images are photographed well and cropped as needed. File sizes should be between 1 and 2MB. Uploaded to Vimeo or YouTube, each video submitted is considered as a single image. Test your links: the jury must be able to access your work.
• Write a brief description of each image and provide the title, size, and medium. NOTE: The application as a whole may evolve over several days and is likely to take 6 to 12 hours to complete. Putting the necessary time and thought into it will greatly improve your chances of success. And, once you have laid the groundwork with this application, you will be better prepared for future applications for awards on or off campus.
