USF Rewarding High School Artistic Talent With Scholarships

The University of Saint Francis will award scholarships to incoming students and high school seniors on Talent Scholarship Day, Friday, May 13 from 9 to 4 p.m. in the Mimi and Ian Rolland Center for Art and Visual Communication off Leesburg Road, at the Fort Wayne Ballet downtown, and the music technology facilities in the USF North Campus at 2702 Spring St. High school juniors are also invited to receive reviews and advice in preparation for their senior year.

Talent Scholarship Day gives new USF students with an interest in art, dance, communication or music the opportunity to submit a portfolio for review and/or audition for scholarship consideration.

Scholarships are available in art history, music technology, dance, studio art, graphic design, art education, animation, communication, pre-art therapy, theatre, jazz, ensemble, marching band, color guard and the University Singers.

Awarded scholarships are renewable for eight semesters, if requirements are met, and can be added to any academic scholarships or need-based grants a student might also receive.

Appointments are required. To reserve a time or receive further information, contact the School of Creative Arts at (260) 399-8064.

The School of Creative Arts is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). Founded in 1944, NASAD establishes national standards for art and design undergraduate and graduate degrees and other credentials.
