Scholarships in Art & Art History

For students entering with a major in Art (B.A. or B.F.A.)

Art Talent Awards
All students applying to Otterbein with a declared major in Art may submit images of one or two of their artworks in order to be considered for a financial talent award of $3000! Even if you’ve never taken a high school art class, you are eligible to apply for these scholarships. We’re interested in the whole person: life experiences, potential to succeed in college and enthusiasm for the arts are all things that we value in our students.

Once you have been accepted into Otterbein and granted an Art Talent Award, you will also have the option to participate in a portfolio review with Art Faculty.  Students participating in portfolio reviews are eligible for additional talent awards, up to an overall total of $8000 in talent award scholarships!  Portfolio reviews may take place on campus or online through Accept’d.

Please contact our Admissions Office for more information.
