Sarofim Scholarship in 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 one of our Portfolio Review Days. 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. 

Prospective students who wish to apply for a Sarofim Scholarship and major in Studio Art may do so through March 1, 2023.  Please look at the requirements below before registering.

All students are encouraged to attend a Portfolio Review Day at Southwestern University.  These days are an opportunity for us to get to know you and vice versa.  We highly recommend attending, although it is not required.
