Continuing Student Scholarships

The online application is now available for submission. The form is easy to fill out if you have prepared your images/files in advance. Please note the submission requirements have changed from previous years. The deadline to submit the application is Friday, February 2, 2018 at 5pm.

All applicants are required to write a brief (500 word maximum) biographical statement regarding his/her own art or design work, pursuits in art history, or desire to teach art. Also the applicant should tell us something about his or her future goals as they relate to the major.

You are no longer required to submit a PDF of your scholarly/creative work (art/design samples, writing samples, or teaching philosophy). However, it is likely in your best interest to provide the extra information/samples to the scholarship committee so they may make better-informed decisions when awarding the various continuing student scholarships. Students may choose to submit only 1 of the 3 following options:

  1. Upload an 8.5 x 11" PDF with thumbnail examples of 6 pieces of your art or design work. The PDF may not exceed 800kb in size. Click here for instructions on how to create a thumbnail page.
  2. Upload a sample of your scholarly writing in PDF form. It is preferred that the subject matter for the paper be related to your major but it is not required for it to be. The PDF may not exceed 800kb in size.
  3. Upload a teaching philosophy in PDF form. The PDF may not exceed 800kb in size.

You may only submit 1 scholarship application. You may edit/change your application by logging in to the application page with your UNT EUID. The application will be active for changes until the deadline date. The system will not allow you to submit an incomplete application (it will flag any problem in red for you to address). Unfortunately, beyond the red flag the system will not tell you what the nature of the problem is. If you have any questions or continue to experience problems while making your application, please contact Jerry Aul (

This application process will go much more quickly if you are able to complete the biographical statement and, if you choose, the second submission from the optional list in advance of beginning the application. If you want to submit a thumbnail sheet with six samples of artwork, but are not sure how to accomplish that, please download this instructional document.

We look forward to receiving your application.
