Student Scholarships

Each year, we award competitive merit-based scholarships to returning students who have demonstrated exceptional artistic promise. These scholarships would not be possible without the generous support of donors like you. In the future, we hope to expand this program to include more of our talented students.

"Students who receive scholarship support are empowered to take more chances and investigate art more deeply because they are financially less burdened. The fact that there were donors investing in the future of their artistic community gave me a confidence in myself that I would not have otherwise had.”
–Miles Mendenhall, scholarship recipient, presenting artist and curator of Appreciation, an exhibit of work by students who received scholarships

International Programs

We deeply value the role of cross-cultural exchange and dialogue in the arts. To this end, we strongly encourage our students to take advantage of our study abroad programs. It is our goal to build upon our current international programs as well as create new learning opportunities for students and faculty around the world. Your support is needed to help students with travel expenses, room and board, art supplies, and other miscellaneous operating costs.

There are a number of opportunities for you to support the Department of Art’s Katherine E. Nash Gallery, student scholarships, and international programs. In most cases, charitable contributions to the Department of Art and/or the Katherine E. Nash Gallery are tax-deductible. 

Make a gift to the Department of Art through the University of Minnesota Foundation.
