CVAD Student Project Award Fund Opportunities


CVAD students are also eligible to apply for a number of student award opportunities here in the College of Visual Arts and Design.

The College of Visual Arts and Design now has funding available through the generous support of a number of its donors and friends to support undergraduate and graduate students through financial award opportunities. These award opportunities were created to directly assist you towards finishing creative projects or scholarly research, presenting at conferences or mounting an exhibition of your work, or with the expenses of study abroad or an internship opportunity.

Additionally, we also have a $1,000 award will be given annually to the leading CVAD student proponent of ethical behavior and concepts.

Deadlines are posted for each individual award. Please check back periodically, as we will update the award information as new funding opportunities become available.
