Talent Scholarship for Art

Saint Mary’s offers scholarships for art to incoming first-year and transfer students who plan to major in art or design. These awards are competitive and require supporting materials.

Students are eligible for $2,000 to $4,000 per academic year. These awards are determined based on the quality of your portfolio. 

Applicants must submit a portfolio of 10 works of art. The work in the portfolio should illustrate the student's drawing competency, ability to use color well, creativity, and craftsmanship. We suggest that you consult with your art teacher in the preparation of the portfolio. All works must be original (not copied from other art or photographs).
