The Department of Art & Design offers Artistic Achievement Awards for incoming PLU students. The Department teaches classes in printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, painting, drawing, letterpress, photography and graphic design. Students use methods ranging from a ten thousand-year-old technique to make pots to cutting-edge and industry standard technology to generate high-tech computer images. Art history and theory courses engage students in critical analysis of major artistic movements from the prehistoric to contemporary world.

Please note: Artistic Achievement Awards and limited endowed scholarships are offered in renewable amounts ranging up to $7,500 per year and are in addition to academic merit awards.

For incoming students to be considered for the Artistic Achievement Award for the 2019-20 academic year, please complete both an admission application to PLU, as well as a scholarship form. You DO NOT have to be admitted to PLU to apply for an award. Applications for the 2019-20 academic year are due February 15, 2019. Applications received after the deadline will be considered second round applications. Awards in second round consideration may or may not be available.
