Windgate Art & Design Scholarship

The Asbury University Art & Design Department is proud to offer a scholarship designed to support talented Art students to achieve their highest potential in Studio Art (painting, sculpture, photography, etc.), Graphic Design, Art History, Pre-Art Therapy, and Art Education.

Windgate Scholars will be selected from among applicants to receive as much as $4,000 per academic year to help cover tuition. Scholarships are for new students – both freshmen and transfers – and are annually renewable. They are merit-based rather than need-based, and can be added (“stacked”) on top of other financial aid packages, up to 100% tuition.

Candidates must declare a Major in Art, Art P–12, or Pre-Art Therapy, and carry a minimum 3.0 GPA or higher. Candidates with higher academic qualifications and evidence of promise in art or related areas will be given priority.

Expectations of Windgate Scholars

  • Windgate Art & Design Scholars will be expected to participate in the Art & Design Department activities, and serve in various leadership roles during their four years, as directed by department faculty. Scholars will forfeit any future awards if the following are not met:
  • Maintain a 3.3 cumulative GPA at Asbury University
  • Maintain an Art, Art P–12 or Pre-Art Therapy major
  • Maintain good standing at Asbury University
