step 1

Be at Parkside.

Arts and Humanities Scholarship Day is open to admitted students. If you haven't visited, applied, and been accepted to Parkside yet, start here.


The best way to know Parkside is to experience it. We've selected a few opportunities to visit campus that we think you'll love.

step 2

Prepare 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.

Samples of your creative talent and expression are required. You'll bring them to Arts and Humanities Scholarship Day.


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.
