Southern Virginia University offers Art + Design scholarships to applying students who exhibit exceptional work ethic and potential for growth as artists or designers. Art + Design scholarships are available to any student, regardless of their intended major.
Submit a 250-500 word cover letter describing your goals as an artist or designer, how a scholarship will help you achieve these goals, and why you should be considered for an Art+Design Scholarship.
Provide 10-15 examples of your best work. You may bring a physical portfolio to campus or submit a collection of digital images showcasing your work (this may be a PDF, website, or shared folder).
After reviewing your application, a representative will contact you to schedule a face-to-face interview. This interview can be done in person or via video chat.
Email your cover letter and digital portfolio to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unable to bring these application materials to campus.
*Faculty may approve art “involvements” not listed in the University Catalog.
