Windgate Art & Design Scholarship
Asbury University Art + Design Department is proud to announce 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 test score of 24 ACT/1110 SAT and a 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
- Maintain an Art, Art P–12 or Pre-Art Therapy major
- Maintain good standing at Asbury University
