We offer scholarships for prospective freshmen and transfers, as well as for current students. Only full-time students are eligible. The deadline for applications is March 1 of each year.
Prospective Students (Incoming Freshman and Transfer) Scholarships are awarded for both the fall and spring semesters of the first year a student attends UCM while majoring in a Department of Art & Design program. All Incoming Freshman and Transfer scholarships require an online application which includes a digital portfolio. 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.
Current Student Scholarships (Foundation Scholarships) are available to currently enrolled Department of Art & Design majors only. These scholarships are available through the University of Central Missouri Foundation Office and have been established by former faculty, alumni, or friends of the Department of Art & Design. All Foundation scholarships require an online application at www.ucmo.edu/mocents and a submitted online digital portfolio. 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.
NOTE: A change in declared major and / or failure to take and pass at least six credit hours of Art & Design courses each semester during the year the scholarship is awarded will result in the rescinding of the scholarship so that it may be awarded to another student majoring in art.
