Art Scholarship

Studying art at Earlham College is a unique experience because we emphasize both contemporary craft media such as ceramics, metal-smithing and fiber arts, and more traditional media such as drawing, painting and photography. 

Scholarship Amount

This scholarship ranges from $1,000 to $2,500 per year and is renewable for up to four years.


Eligible students must be accepted to and enroll at Earlham as part of the fall entering class and plan to major or minor in art.

Please note: Students receiving funds from the INspire Earlham Program can apply for these scholarships but are not eligible for additional funding since tuition is already covered by the INspire Earlham Program.

Selection Process

Recipients are chosen by the faculty in the art department based on academic achievement in high school, portfolio submission and completed application form.

Renewal Criteria

To remain eligible, you must maintain a 2.0 GPA, take an art course every semester while on campus and major or minor in art.

Additional scholarship opportunity for Indiana students

The Rariden Scholarship is awarded annually to one student entering Earlham who is interested in pursuing an area within the visual and performing arts—art, music or theatre. Preference is given to a student from Wayne County, Indiana, although the selection committee will consider Indiana students from outside the county as well. The scholarship is $5,000 per year for four years at Earlham, totaling $20,000.

In addition, the Len Holvig and Anna Morrisett awards offer financial assistance for singers and pianists as well as numerous awards for private lessons.
