The Department of Design is pleased to host the Design Scholarship Competition. The competition is open to all degree seeking, undergraduate students attending Winthrop University for the first time (freshman and transfer) students during the academic year. Students must declare a major within the Department of Design: Visual Communication Design (Graphic Design, Illustration), and Interior Design.

Scholarship amounts will vary based on the decision of the Design scholarship committee. Students selected for an award have the opportunity to renew their scholarship for up to three years after the initial award year providing they remain in good academic standing as a full-time student in the Department of Design. Out-of-state students selected for this award are eligible to receive the scholarship amount in addition to an out-of-state tuition waiver (valued at $14,330 for the 2019-2020 academic year).
