Prospective (Incoming Freshman and Transfer) Scholarship Application:

Based on electronic portfolio review and completed applications (see link below in second paragraph), the UCM Department of Art & Design offers merit-based achievement scholarships to incoming first time students: Freshman and Transfer Students. The amount offered per scholarship varies according to the potential shown by the strength of the portfolio. The scholarship is awarded for both the fall and spring semesters of the first year a student attends UCM while majoring in a program offered by the UCM Department of Art & Design. All applications must be submitted by March 1, 2017 for the 2017-2018 academic year. 

All freshman applicants are eligible for these scholarships. Each applicant who submits an online application which includes a digital portfolio by the deadline will be considered for that year’s scholarship. The digital portfolio consists of 15 - 20 pieces of recent work, which may include drawings and two- and three-dimensional pieces. Take good photos of your work. The Scholarship Committee will give preference to high school seniors who have demonstrated outstanding artistic and scholastic potential for a professional career in the visual arts and who have a strong high school record with SAT or ACT scores consistent with that performance.
