The School of Arts and Communication offers several Artistic Achievement Awards to talented, incoming students (new and transferring). 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. Awards are renewable for up to three additional years, and are available to students in Art & Design, Dance, Music, and Theatre.

Students are eligible to apply for awards in multiple areas. To be considered for an Artistic Achievement Award, students must complete both an admission application to PLU as well as a scholarship application form.
