Competitive Talent-Based Scholarships for Incoming Students are awarded to entering freshman and transfer students based on portfolio or essay evaluations made by the Foundations Committee submitted with your INCOMING STUDENT APPLICATION. Scholarships can range in value from $4,000 to $2,000.

Real and Muff Musgrave – Medici Circle Art Scholarship
Real & Muff Musgrave established the endowment for this scholarship in 2012 to provide a scholarship which "shall be awarded on a merit/needs basis to a student, in good academic standing (with at least a 3.0 GPA in a 4.0 system in art curriculum), who has completed two years in undergraduate work (any area) in the School of Art and has demonstrated high proficiency in drawing, as judged by the SOA Scholarship Committee. The award shall be renewable for one year, so long as the student has maintained an overall academic standing of 3.0 GPA or higher in a 4.0 system for the preceding year. It is the intent of the principal benefactors that special consideration and encouragement be given to a third year art student [beginning 3rd year of studies] with demonstrated drawing ability, who is pursuing a degree with the goal to derive the bulk of their income from the creation of their art. And that student shall have this support available for their final two years of undergraduate study." Juniors (or seniors who anticipate taking two years before graduating) may apply. The next round of applications for this scholarship will be in Spring 2019 for the 2019-2020 academic year.
