Winthrop University Department of Fine Arts

Fall 2019 Scholarship Competition

 

The Department of Fine Arts is pleased to announce the Fall 2019 Fine Arts 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 2020-2021 academic year. Students must declare a major within the Department of Fine Arts: Studio Art (includes the disciplines of painting, jewelry/metals, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, photography, and video), Art Education, or Art History. 

Scholarship amounts will vary based on the decision of the Fine Arts 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 Fine Arts. 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). 

This scholarship is contingent on admission to Winthrop University.  An online application can be found at www.winthrop.edu/admissions. Acceptance of this award does not impact eligibility for other Winthrop academic scholarships offered by the Office of Admissions.
