Art Scholarships

Current findings in evolutionary theory show that art is a human universal: from prehistory to contemporaneity people from all societies have produced artworks and continue to do so, disproving the claims about ‘the death of art’ voiced by some contemporary critics.

The art scholarships will give you the opportunity to learn more about this universal human behavior and to explore its manifestations in various cultures and historical periods.

By providing a broad yet in-depth survey of various artistic media (painting, sculpture, music, new media etc.) and their historical development, the programs covered by these scholarships will be invaluable for shedding more light on one of the most important trademarks of humanity.

Students seeking admission to the University of Alabama at Birmingham [UAB] can benefit from this scholarship worth $1,000. The scholarship award is intended for students enrolled for performing arts courses. Special consideration is given for students enrolled for music courses.
