Arts and Humanities Scholarship Day

Turn your creativity into scholarship money! Thousands of dollars in scholarships are awarded on Arts and Humanities Scholarship Day. Scholarships based on creative work are open to all newly admitted students pursuing art and humanities majors who will begin their studies at Parkside during the 2019-2020 academic year.

Already Accepted to Parkside?

Get started on your scholarship application. Your application will require information about yourself, including what major(s) you plan to study. You will also complete a general scholarship application to be considered for additional opportunities.


Students who are competing for Arts and Humanities Scholarships must share a sampling of their creative talents or expressions during an informal interview process with faculty and staff in the department they hope to enter as majors. 

On Scholarship Day, students in Humanities—English, Communication, Liberal Studies, and Spanish—will need to bring sample work and be prepared for an interview with faculty. Music and Theatre students will have auditions. And Art and Graphic Design students are asked to bring a portfolio.  

For detailed instructions visit the creative expression guide.
