Art and graphic design portfolio review, scholarships

Interested in studying art at Augustana? Share your original art with the Department of Art during a portfolio review. Your work will receive an evaluation by Augustana art faculty and you will become eligible for a merit-based art scholarship.

Augustana offers art scholarships up to $4,000, renewed annually, for students who declare a major or minor in art, graphic design or art education, or who complete two studio art or graphic design courses each year.

Portfolio reviews for both high school seniors and transfer students will be held Nov. 17, 2018, and Jan. 19, 2019. To make an appointment for a portfolio review on one of these dates, contact Julie Schneider at 309-794-7729

In your portfolio, include 6-15 original works in any media; it’s recommended that you include a life drawing. We encourage you to visit campus, bring your portfolio for review and meet one-on-one with faculty.

If you choose to send a CD or DVD by mail, please indicate medium and size of each work. Send your submission to Augustana College Department of Art, 639 38th Street, Rock Island, Illinois 61201. We do not review portfolios after Jan. 19, and do not accept submissions by email.

Questions? Please direct questions to department chair Megan Quinn, 309-794-7158.
