The SFA Friends of the Visual Arts Board provides a limited number of grants to deserving students enrolled in SFA's School of Art to aide those students in furthering their educational and professional goals in the field of art.
Grants are available to art students to support:
- books or art supplies required for a student's study or career advancement
- travel related to a student's coursework, career advancement (e.g., professional conference) or co-curricular activity
- or fees for professional conferences.
Grants are available for up to $400 per academic year for an individual student and may not be used to pay for tuition and fees or debts to the university.
There are many scholarships available! Whether you’re applying for a scholarship or interested in a grant, loan or work-study program, you’ll need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and make sure you meet certain academic and financial requirements. Don’t worry, financial aid isn’t as complicated as it sounds, and we’re here to help you before, during and after the application process. Apply early, as the application deadline for many scholarships is Feb. 1.
Finding an on- or off-campus job
Be sure to apply for work-study, when available. Work-study positions are part-time jobs are federally funded opportunities on-campus designed to help cover costs associated with your educational expenses. If you're interested in the federal work-study program, you will need to answer "yes" to question 31 on your FAFSA. Visit SFA's Applying for Aid page to learn more.
Whether or not you qualify for the federal work-study program, employment opportunities are available in the School of Theatre and Dance and many other places on campus. Students also find off-campus employment through opportunities posted with the Center for Career and Professional Development.
