Visual arts is pleased to award over $100,000 in scholarships every year. Students majoring in visual arts may compete yearly for scholarship support. 


Incoming Freshman Scholarships

Visual arts recommends incoming students with a portfolio to apply for scholarship support. We also encourage students to apply for one of our newer Incoming Visual Arts Diversity Scholarships. Students that participated in Kentucky Governor's School for the Arts or Kentucky Governor's Scholars Program are also eligible for a 4-year full tuition scholarship from NKU.


Current Student Scholarships

The Visual Arts Program in the School of the Arts at Northern Kentucky University is pleased to offer scholarships for students majoring in Visual Arts. Current visual arts students may compete yearly for scholarship support. Applicants will be judged on the merits of their artwork, as well as their overall grade point average, participation in visual arts courses, and overall artistic development.
