Studio Art Department Admission & Scholarship Portfolio Reviews

Studio Art

The Sarofim Scholarship in Studio Art is given to students showing talent and a desire for growth in this field.  The process includes a portfolio review by the faculty and an application.  We have completed on-campus portfolio review days for students entering Fall of 2020.  If you are interested in majoring in Studio Art and receiving a scholarship please consider the digital review.

The portfolio reviews are NOT required in order to major in Studio Art at Southwestern. Sarofim Scholarships in Studio Art are for Studio Art majors only. 


If you cannot come to campus, you may send in a digital portfolio; all-digital portfolio reviews require a phone interview.  The deadline to have all files for the digital portfolio review is March 31, 2020.  Telephone interviews can be scheduled past this date.
