New graduate students started classes on Wednesday, September 27, and were welcomed to the School of Art + Art History + Design in an evening event that included: an exhibition reception for Material Performance: Second Year MFA in the Jacob Lawrence Gallery; self-introductions to a crowd of faculty, staff, and School Advisory Board members; a BBQ dinner; and a looping slideshow of work by or research images related to the new students.
The School is able to attract outstanding students in art, art history, and design by building competitive financial packages for top graduate student applicants. Quarterly scholarships and fellowships for graduate students are funded from the following:
