Auditioning for Art Scholarships

Students should bring a digital portfolio containing at least 12 and no more than 20 digital images of their most recent art. This should be in the form of a PowerPoint containing:

  • Clear photographs of recent artwork, including details or alternate views as needed. Work must be identified by title, date, medium and size.
  • A clearly written, thoughtful statement of 300-500 words, discussing the student’s efforts to explore media, themes, and address artistic challenges.

Faculty will review the digital portfolio and statement during an on-campus interview with the student.  The dates for on-campus interviews prior to Fall 2020 enrollment are:

  • January 18, 2020
  • February 8, 2020
  • March 14, 2020

Students may bring actual examples of work to their interview. The digital portfolio will be retained by the Art Department.

Students for whom travel to interviews would constitute a genuine hardship, may request a telephone or Skype interview. If their request is granted, students would be responsible for submitting portfolios at least a week before the date of the interview. While faculty are willing to make such accommodations, face-to-face interviews are much preferred.
