Scholarships are available to incoming first-year students. These are awarded on the basis of a portfolio review and are not linked to academic merit or financial need. The scholarships are renewable for up to four years as long as the student remains an art major and his or her cumulative grade point average does not drop below 2.75. Applicants are reviewed for scholarship awards from September 1 to February 1. If you are planning to attend Valparaiso University this fall, we would encourage you to submit your portfolio for review as soon as possible. Please review the Portfolio Requirements link. The number of available scholarships is limited, so please make sure that we receive your portfolio no later than February 1.
