Art and Design Scholarships
The Art and Design Department at Saint Xavier University has a tradition of developing students that are visually literate, culturally aware and interested in a life of creative collaboration. Students majoring or minoring in art and design are an important part of the SXU community. Their ability to bring an understanding of visual language and creative problem solving to their other classes, clubs and interactions enhance the University in a wide variety of ways. We are interested in retaining and rewarding students who want to create, communicate and collaborate while studying the underlying history, theory and craft of the art and design disciplines.
Saint Xavier offers a wide range of scholarships available to students University-wide and to students who fall into certain parameters like a specific major or academic year. There are a variety of other scholarships are also offered outside of Saint Xavier, which we call outside scholarships, that you may be eligible to receive based on the establishment's requirements. For more information concerning these scholarships and their application details, please visit the scholarship directory.
