Scholarships & Fellowships

Out-of-state students may apply for the Academic Achievement Scholarship for $1,000. With this scholarship, out-of-state students are granted in-state tuition status, which results in a tuition savings of more than $8,300 annually.

Out-of-state students from states without a Ph.D. program in Art Education may apply for in-state tuition rates through Academic Common Market, an interstate agreement for sharing uncommon programs between 14 Southern states. Residents of these states who are accepted for admission into selected out-of-state programs may enroll on an in-state tuition basis. To qualify, an applicant must (1) be accepted unconditionally into a program to which his or her state has made arrangements to send its students and (2) submit proof to the university of legal residence in the home state. Residents of the Southern states should contact the Texas state coordinator for the Academic Common Market, in care of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, P.O. Box 12788, Capitol Station, Austin, TX 78711, or contact the Toulouse Graduate School at UNT for more information.

Full-time students in the Ph.D. in Art Education program are eligible to serve as Teaching Assistants or Teaching Fellows in the Department of Art Education and Art History, the UNT Art Gallery, the Texas Fashion Collection, and elsewhere within the college. Each quarter-time appointment carries a salary of over $2,800, such that half-time employment for the academic year would provide a salary of over $11,000.

Exemplary students with a half-time TA or TF appointment are also eligible to receive a tuition waiver for 9 hours of coursework per semester through the Toulouse Graduate School’s Tuition Benefit Plan.

There are many opportunities for scholarships both within CVAD and UNT. Explore your options by visiting the pages below:
