Scholarships & Grants
Every spring, the department announces a competition for departmental scholarships. These scholarships are open only to current University of Minnesota art majors (BA or BFA) who plan to enroll full-time for the following academic year. Students will receive an email from the department when the application period nears.
Update May 2020:
In response to the concern that several of our students may be in challenging financial situations this year, we have allocated some of our scholarship funding to the CLA Emergency Fund, earmarked specifically for art students. Support for rent, food, medical costs and technology needs as it's related to remote learning are their priorities. Other needs are also considered on a case by case basis.
You can apply for these via the scholarship application in SlideRoom.
- Applications will be assessed by a faculty committee composed of representatives from each area.
- The application period runs from May 1-May 22.
- Students must be degree-seeking registered students for the upcoming fall and spring semester, 2020-2021.
- Funds will be disbursed to student accounts fall and spring of next academic year.
We understand that you may not have access to your more recent work, or equipment or setting for the highest-quality work sample documentation. The panel will keep this in mind, and you are welcome to submit in-progress work.
