Scholarships are available to declared UM Art Majors enrolled as full-time students at the sophomore level or above at the time the scholarship is received. These scholarships are awarded through an application process that generally takes place at the beginning of the spring semester, with the awards effective the next academic year. Criteria include an overall grade point average of 3.0 and exceptional talent in both technical and creative abilities. Both BA and BFA students may apply. Selection is based on the creativity and uniqueness of the artist, as well as the donor's preferences, (if applicable). Undergraduate scholarships range from $500 to $2000 per candidate.
The School of Art understands that financing a college education is one of the most important investments a student and his or her family will make. We encourage students to develop a plan for the student's responsible financial planning. According to Financial Aid Services, approximately 2/3 of all UM students receive some type of financial aid. We encourage students to contact UM Financial Aid Office for additional assistance and answers to specific questions.
