Morrison Scholarship – Spring 2009

January 27, 2009  by: Dom


The Morrison Scholarship is intended to assist talented undergraduate art majors in need of financial support towards completion of their degree. Awards must be used for costs incurred for tuition or supplies.

Priority will be given to undergraduate accepted art majors in good standing.  Graduate students who demonstrate financial need are also eligible to apply.  Students may apply each semester; however, only one award will be given per year per student recipient (ie. Fall recipients will not be eligible for Spring awards). 

Application Process

Applications are available in the Visual Studies Department office (202 CFA).  Financial information, as indicated on the application, must be provided by the student.  The student must have a full-time faculty member support their application by writing a brief recommendation.  (If you wish to ask an adjunct instructor or one of the techs to write your recommendation, it must be endorsed by a full- time faculty member.)  Applications are then submitted to the Visual Studies Department office for review by the Scholarship Committee.  Late applications will not be accepted.

Please allow sufficient time before the deadline date for your faculty sponsor to review your application and write their recommendation of support.

Award Process

The Office of Financial Aid will rank applicants based on financial need.  The Visual Studies Scholarship Committee will then review the ranking and applications and make the final award decisions.  Awardees are notified by mail and are required to write a letter of thanks to the scholarship sponsor.
