Scholarships and Awards


School of Art and Design scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students are awarded on the basis of ability as reflected in the creative portfolio, academic excellence, and with some scholarships, need. Scholarships are contingent upon guidelines and availability of funding.

The application for School of Art and Design scholarships must be submitted online through ECUAward. This site can be accessed by signing on with ECU credentials, and it will be directed to the Opportunities page. Use "Art" and "Design" as keywords for search/filter, then SoAD scholarship will populate the list (with the exception of non-SoAD opportunities that contain the same keywords in their description).

When a general scholarship application is completed, it will automatically be submitted to "Auto-Match" opportunities where the applicant meets the predetermined requirements based on their application and data within the student record.

The SoAD scholarships are "Apply-To" opportunities where applicants will submit additional material such as portfolio, image list, and written statement about work.

The submission due date is January 15 for all awards.
