The School of Art provides a professional and academic education for students desiring careers in the visual arts. Artists in the program are researchers, teachers, historians, designers, and studio artists. School of Art scholarships provide artists in the program the opportunity to create their futures. Gifts made to the School of Art during Birds Give Back directly impact students through scholarships as well as support the operations, activities, and programs of the school.

This year during Birds Give Back, the School of Art is featuring five scholarship funds.  Read about the impact that each fund has had through the personal stories of current students and alumni.
