Department of Art Scholarships & Fellowships

Apply to receive funds specifically designated for Department of Art majors at MSU Denver. Contact the Department of Art office at 303-615-0300 with any questions.

Our generous donors provide several different scholarships to Department of Art students. Each of the 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 Department of Art faculty and in some cases, the donor.

Below are the specific criteria for each of the 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.


Student Clubs & Organizations

Please send new or changed art club and organization information or stories about your events and happenings to [email protected], and it will be updated and shared here and through social media.
