Art Scholarships

Scholarship Opportunities for Art Majors

Apply to receive funds specifically designated for Art Majors at MSU Denver. Contact the Art Office with any questions.

Our generous donors provide several different scholarships to art students. Each of the art scholarships has unique criteria for eligibility. Applications are available online and must be submitted by the given deadline.

For each of the scholarships, applicants must submit materials addressing the applicant's background and qualifications for receiving the scholarship, such as a portfolio, a description of the applicant's career plans, or a statement specifically addressing the eligibility criteria for that particular scholarship. Recipients of the scholarships are determined by a scholarship committee made up of Art Department faculty and in some cases, the donor.

Below are the specific criteria for each of the art scholarships. Please note, not every scholarship is available every year; the application will list the available scholarships for any given year. Eligibility requirements for each scholarship must be met at the time of application, as well as at the time of disbursement.
