Windgate Art Scholarships

Windgate Art Scholarships

Asbury University Art Department is proud to announce a $4,000 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.

Three to four Windgate Scholars will be selected to receive $4,000 awards beginning in the 2017 fall semester. 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.
