Art & Design Scholarship

The Department of Art and Design, sponsored by the Office of the Provost, has been granted ten one-semester Art and Design Scholarships to award for the 2023-2024 academic year. Five are to be awarded to intended freshmen art majors/incoming student art majors and five are to be awarded to currently declared art majors. This scholarship is based on outstanding achievement and grade point average (3.0 GPA) and covers tuition remission (no course fees). You must be registered for at least 12 credit hours during the semester of the scholarship and you must be a declared Art Studio, Art Education, or Art History major.

This award is valued at approximately $4653 (tuition remission for 15 credit hours/full time enrollment for one semester), but is subject to the total number of enrolled classes for the award semester. Please contact Prof. Katherine Poole-Jones, Chair of the Art and Design Scholarship Committee if you have additional questions: kpoole@siue.
