Art department portfolio review, scholarships

Every year, Augustana College offers scholarships for students interested in studying art, art education, art history, and/or graphic design. Our faculty are interested in where you are now and where you want to go: What are your questions? What are you curious about? 

Art department scholarships award up to $4,000 annually ($16,000 over a four-year period). Awards are renewed based on students taking at least one art department course per year.

Getting to know each other:

Reserve an in-person or virtual scholarship meeting now. Art faculty want to meet you and hear about your dreams and why you like to do the work you do. And, we encourage you to think of some questions you might like to ask us.  

Please bring a portfolio of your work, up to six pieces. Digital portfolios are acceptable.

If you have questions you want to ask before meeting with faculty, send your questions to the art department chair, Vickie Phipps, associate professor of art and graphic design.

Art portfolio review dates: 

Feb. 18, 2023, on campus, in conjunction with Academic Scholarship Day (deadline Feb. 12, 2023)

March 4, 2023, virtual, appointments 10 a.m.-2 p.m. (deadline Feb. 26, 2023)

If you cannot attend any of these dates, please contact art department chair Vickie Phipps to make alternate arrangements.
