USF Rewarding High School Artistic Talent With Scholarships

The University of Saint Francis will award scholarships to incoming students on Talent Scholarship Day Friday, May 12 from 9-4 p.m. in the Mimi and Ian Rolland Center for Art and Visual Communication off Leesburg Road, the Fort Wayne Ballet downtown and the Music Technology Center at 431 W. Berry Street.

Talent Scholarship Day gives new USF students with an interest in art, music, communication or dance the opportunity to submit a portfolio for review and/or audition for scholarship consideration with the full-time faculty of the School of Creative Arts. Facility and campus tours are also available.

Scholarships are available in art history, music technology, dance, studio art, graphic design, art education, animation, communication, pre-art therapy, museum studies, marching band, color guard, and the University Singers. High school juniors are invited to receive reviews and advice in preparation for their senior year.

Awarded scholarships are renewable for eight semesters, if the required grade point average is 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 USF School of Creative Arts is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
