General application information for all departmental scholarships
- The General and Departmental Scholarship Application is available each year around November 1 and the deadline is March 1.
- All Department of Art + Design Scholarships require the submission of a Portfolio for consideration (artwork or written work, depending on the student's major field of study). This selection of work should be submitted with the online application as a Powerpoint presentation accessible by both Mac and PC (written work—art history essays, for example—may be uploaded as Word files or PDF). Students wishing to submit animation should contact BCJennings@MissouriState.edu for current guidelines. Titles and dates of creative work should be included as part of the presentation.
- At this time, the only Art + Design scholarship that requires letters of recommendation is the Hugh C. and Faith A. Yorty Award for Excellence in the Field of Painting and Drawing.
- Notification of scholarship decisions will be made in May.
