The purpose of the Art Scholarship is to encourage students to pursue their passions in a creative, stimulating, and intellectually engaging environment.
To be considered for a scholarship, students must present a portfolio for review by members of the Art and Art History faculty. This allows the prospective student to share their work and process.
Students may submit a portfolio of 10-15 of their strongest works in any medium; it may include work you have done in class or independently. The portfolio should represent who you are as an artist.
We encourage students to bring a sketchbook in the form of a traditional book of drawings, a journal, visual scrapbook or even a well designed blog or website.
In preparing for your portfolio review, it may be helpful to consider the following questions:
- What artists do I look at for inspiration?
- What is my creative process?
- What am I trying to communicate with my art?
- Why did I choose the respective media/ forms to express my ideas?
The Art History Scholarship promotes the study of art history at Albion College. The study of art history encourages students to better appreciate and understand the visual world around them, and it reveals interconnections between the arts and other kinds of intellectual and cultural achievements.
Application Process: Students who wish to be considered for the Art History Scholarship should submit an example of written work and plan to interview with members of the Art and Art History Department.
