Scholarship ceremony at CVAD in the Voertman Gallery

Continuing CVAD Student Scholarship

These scholarship awards are for the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters. Many scholarships are tailored to applicants based on criteria ranging from GPA to specific special interests. The CVAD Continuing Student Scholarship helps deserving CVAD students who are continuing in enrollment from the spring semester to the next fall semester.

Who is eligible?

Students who are continuing in the College of Visual Arts and Design may apply for a scholarship! Successful completion of one semester as a CVAD student is required.

Application Form

When the application period is open, you will find a link to the application form on this page. The form is easy to fill out if you have prepared your images and files in advance.


The next deadline to submit the application is TBA



All applicants are required to write a brief — 500-word maximum — biographical statement regarding his, her or their art or design work, pursuits in art history, or desire to teach art. Also, the applicant should tell us something about his or her future goals as they relate to the major field of study.


It is in your best interest to provide the extra information/samples to the scholarship committee so they may make better-informed decisions when awarding the various continuing student scholarships.


Submit One of the Three Options • Thumbnail Examples Instructions Sheet

Students may choose to submit only one of the three following options.

  1. Upload an 8.5" x 11" portable document file, PDF, with thumbnail examples of six pieces of your art or design work. The PDF may not exceed 800kb in size.
  2. Upload a sample of your scholarly writing in PDF form. It is preferred that the subject matter for the paper be related to your major but it is not required for it to be. The PDF may not exceed 800kb in size.
  3. Upload a teaching philosophy in PDF form. The PDF may not exceed 800kb in size.

Number of Applications

You may submit only one scholarship application. You may edit/change your application by logging in to the application page with your UNT credentials — your EUID and PIN. The application will be active for changes until the deadline date. The system will not allow you to submit an incomplete application and will flag any problem in red for you to address. Unfortunately, beyond the red flag, the system will not tell you what the nature of the problem is.

Tip: This application process will go much more quickly if you are able to complete the biographical statement and, if you choose, the second submission from the options list before beginning the application.

We look forward to receiving your application. If you have any questions or experience problems while making your application, please contact Jerry Aul,, CVAD senior administrative coordinator, Art Building, Room 101.
