The Visual Arts Program is proud to announce two new diversity scholarships for incoming students.
Diversity in Visual Arts Scholarship
To encourage diversity and inclusion in Visual Arts. This award defines diversity in broad terms (ethnicity, race, gender identity, age, abilities, or socio- economic status).
Visual Arts Diversity Scholarship in memory of Craig Haskins
To encourage diversity and inclusion in Visual Arts. Open to incoming freshman, international or transfer students.
Craig Haskins was an African American student that made a large impact on the Visual Arts Program. He was an exceptional student that was kind and diligent in his studies. Craig showed great courage in pursuing his degree at NKU while battling several health conditions. Many students and faculty did not know of his health issues as he focused on a strong work ethic, not letting his health stand in the way of his studies. Craig’s father brought him to campus in a wheelchair so he could turn in his final art and design projects the day before his passing. This scholarship serves as a memorial to Craig’s life and his creative pursuits.
Diversity Scholarship Details
Students who are majoring in Visual Arts that have officially applied at NKU and meet this scholarship criteria may compete for this scholarship support. Students may apply for either or both scholarships. As the application is the same for both, you will need to specify for which you are applying where asked within it.
Materials you will need for this application:
