Incoming USI freshmen who major in art or art education and who submit a completed application by midnight on the first Friday in February are eligible for these scholarships.
Our numerous USI Freshman Art Scholarship Awards range from $500-$2,500 and are automatically renewed for each of the following three years if the recipient remains an art or art education major, maintains his/her full-time enrollment status and remains in good academic standing. All USI Scholarship Awards apply to student tuition.
The Sol and Arlene Bronstein Art Scholarship is awarded to ONE incoming freshman art or art education major every year. The scholarship is valued at $1,000 per academic year, renewable for up to three years, and may be applied to student tuition, fees and supplies.
All students who complete this application will be considered for both of the scholarships above. Awards are based on artistic excellence and a student's potential to excel in creative and professional endeavors.
