Each spring semester a Scholarship Day competition determines awards granted to both incoming and returning Department of Fine Arts majors. Scholarships are based upon academic achievement and evidence of artistic merit awarded by a committee of department faculty. Most scholarships are contingent upon enrollment of at least 12 credit hours per semester and a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0.
Visual and Performing Arts awards scholarships to Fine Arts, Music, Theatre and Visual Communication and Design majors. These awards are provided from the school rather than from a specific department.
Student work-study and other paid positions are also available.
Our Chancellor's Distinguished Scholarship will pay full tuition and our Chancellor's Scholarship will pay 1/2 tuition. Both scholarships are renewable for four years. The IPFW Admissions Office also has 50 Chancellor Merit Awards that are available to students that are not legal residents of the state of Indiana. The scholarship allows nonresidents to pay in-state fees. High school seniors must rank in the top 25% of their graduating class and have an SAT score of 1650 or an ACT score of 25 or above. International students should e-mail the International Student Services Office for more information.
A student may receive a Chancellor's Scholarship, a Chancellor's Distinguished Scholarship, or a Chancellor's Merit Award, but no more than one of these scholarships will be awarded to an individual student. Not available to students currently or previously enrolled at IPFW. Awards commence in fall semester.
