The maximum award is $750.00, and can be applied to any aspect of a students art education or art practice. At the discretion of the Art Department, one grant may be awarded or it may be divided into a number of smaller grants, not exceeding $750.00 in total during each Academic year.
Some examples of projects to be funded include travel expenses (i.e. a summer trip to Italy to study Renaissance painting), expenses for framing for an exhibit, model fees for a specific project, or photographer’s fee for preparing a portfolio of the student’s work. At the completion of the project, students write a narrative summary of the experience, including financial documentation of how the Grant money was spent. Students will be offered an exhibition in Wagner’s Spotlight Gallery.
