About Art Scholarships
St. Olaf art scholarships are merit-based scholarships that are awarded to incoming new students with exceptional art talent. Students may also qualify for additional need-based aid, in which case the art scholarship is a component of the student’s financial aid package.
Scholarships of $6,000 per year are open to art majors and non-art majors. This merit-based award is potentially a $24,000 4-year scholarship. Recipients are strongly encouraged to participate in a minimum of one studio art course per year.
Art scholarship applications for students planning to enter St. Olaf in the fall of 2020 are due December 15, 2019. A student applying for an art scholarship must also submit an application for admission to the college. The college application must be submitted no later than January 15, 2020. Visit the admissions website for more information and to apply.
Students who wish to apply under the binding Early Decision Application can submit the Art Scholarship Application early. A portfolio review may be required, so we encourage you start this process well in advance of November 15th or January 8th.
