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.  Prospective students are encouraged to participate in a portfolio review at our Portfolio Review Day. This day offers you an in-depth look into the Studio Art Department and introduces you to the faculty .  The Portfolio reviews are NOT required in order to join the Studio Art major at Southwestern. Candidates that receive the Sarofim Scholarship are eligible for additional assistance, including Southwestern scholarships.

Sarofim Scholarships in Studio Art are for Studio Art majors only. 

Please note the following: Due to the unpredictable nature of Covid-19,  we encourage you to visit the website often and check your emails from Southwestern and or the Sarofim School of Fine Arts. Some requirements and dates may change.
