Art Scholarships

Students in the ceramics lab

Seminole State's Art Program does more than teach art. We're here to help talented artists begin a lifetime of creation and self-expression. To help our most promising students, we offer an Art Scholarship Program for studio art majors and art education majors.

Pre-Art A.A.

The amount awarded for this scholarship varies, and it may be used only for books and tuition. To be eligible for this scholarship, students must:

  • Have an overall GPA of at least 2.5, as well as at least a 3.0 GPA in art
  • Be currently enrolled at Seminole State as a full-time student
  • Submit a portfolio for review that contains:
    • Six works of art or slides in a professional presentation
    • A scholarship application that states their artistic goals
    • An unofficial copy of their transcripts

Scholarships are awarded for spring, summer and fall semesters. Portfolios are reviewed in March and October. If you submit a portfolio, your work will be returned the following Monday.
