Everyone on campus is always there for one another. It makes it a lot easier to be away from home when you feel like you have a second family at Mount Union.

Art Scholarship Portfolio Review

Art Scholarship Awards typically range from $1,000 to $5,000 per year and are eight-semester renewable awards based upon meeting the terms set by the faculty. Portfolio reviews for these awards are open to both art majors and non-majors who have been admitted to the University.

All awards are talent-based and offered regardless of financial need.
