Information and Guidelines
The Harding University Department of Art & Design has scholarships that range from $250 to $600 per year. You must meet the criteria listed below to be eligible for one of the scholarships. Please remember that you are competing with other applicants. Do not let this discourage you, but a complete and timely application is important. All applications must be received no later than April 15. Scholarship winners will be notified as soon as possible, usually within a month of the deadline.
All submitted work should be original. that is, it should be done from observation of real life, from photographs that you have taken, or from your imagination. Original work better represents your abilities than work that has been copied from published photographs or another's art. When assigning scholarships considerable weight will be given to originality. If it is not possible to send original work you may submit a portfolio of photographs (slides or prints) or your work. These should be good quality photographs.
If you send your portfolio by mail, please wrap it securely in a reusable carton. We will either return it to you by mail, or if you desire we will hold it for you to pick up. If we can be of any assistance to you please let us know. Our office hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.
