The Emmanuel College Design Scholarship is a competitive scholarship program designed to recognize an incoming freshman student with demonstrated excellence in graphic design skills.
Criteria: Recipients must submit an application prior to December 1 of their high school senior year to be considered for review. The application process requires:
- A scholarship application submission
- Submit 3 digital images of representative artworks that have been completed in the past two years. Artwork must be submitted as .jpgs. Please include a pdf or Word doc list of image titles, mediums, and dates of completion
- A half- to one-page artist’s statement with a brief description of your artworks that shapes the viewers’ perspective when they are looking at your artwork in general.
- 500 Word essay responding to the prompt: My Personal/Academic/Artistic Goals
Fund Restrictions: This scholarship program is limited to tuition assistance only. Room and board, fees, and fines are not eligible to be covered by the fund. Funds not eligible for use in summer terms.
Award Amount: The annual award amount is $5000. Funds can be used in combination with other institutional aid but cannot create a tuition overage or refund. Annual award amount may be reduced to eliminate financial assistance exceeding full-tuition once all other federal, state, and institutional aid has been awarded.
Recipient Limits: No more than one recipient per academic year will be selected. Students that withdraw, change major, or otherwise become ineligible will not generate eligibility for a replacement recipient.
Renewal: The scholarship is renewable up to a maximum of eight semesters of enrollment. Students must maintain a 3.0 CGPA and continue in the Emmanuel College Graphic Design program. A student changing major is no longer eligible for this fund. Students that lose eligibility due to minimum GPA requirements can regain eligibility in later semesters once the minimum GPA requirement has been met. Students are responsible to notify the Office of Financial Aid once eligibility has been regained. Emmanuel College reserves the right to rescind scholarship eligibility if a student engages in behavior that brings into question his or her honesty, maturity, or moral character.
All scholarship funds offered by Emmanuel College are subject to availability.
