Over a dozen Art majors at the University of West Florida are receiving $1500 per year from the Presidential Talent Scholarship, which is awarded only to entering freshmen. This scholarship will be automatically renewed for four full years, as long as the recipient maintains a 3.0 GPA.

Join the ranks of these talented young artists by applying for a Presidential Talent Scholarship before the deadline on April 5, 2013. Applications must include the following four items:

1) a completed Art Scholarship Application (pdf) in the applicant’s own handwriting;
2) a letter of recommendation from the applicant’s art teacher;
3) a High School transcript;
4) a portfolio of art work (no more than a dozen pieces), either original works or digital images on CD
(CDs will not be returned; portfolios of original art work can be picked up on, or after April 23.)

Application materials can be dropped off in person at the Art Department Office, or they can be mailed to:

Presidential Talent Scholarship Committee
