Barbara L. Buzick Art Scholarship & John R. Adams Endowed Art Scholarship

Both of these full-ride scholarships seek exceptionally strong artists with demonstrated commitments to high academic and artistic performance. To support these endeavors, both scholarships provide full-time tuition and room/board, as well as an annual stipend for academic/art supplies. While the Barbara L. Buzick is only open to incoming freshmen, the John R. Adams is open to all college levels, with a preference for transferring upperclassmen. Both scholarships may be renewed for up to four years, subject to review of recipient's performance. Both scholarships also have provisions for funding study abroad, with some limitations.
