Arts Applicants

Students who have a passion for cinema, writing, dance, music, studio art, or theatre may wish to submit supplementary materials for scholarship consideration.

Arts Scholarships

Denison offers various arts scholarships to recognize talented first-year students who have passions in the arts, providing students an award from $5,000 to half tuition which is renewable for four years—regardless of whether the student decides to major in the arts.

Arts Supplement Requirements

Submitted materials will be reviewed by members of the arts faculty in the designated area(s). By sharing a portfolio, students are able to showcase their artistic talents, regardless of their major. Awards are based on a holistic application evaluation and a submitted portfolio that is due at the time of the application.

Submission of supplementary materials is completely optional and students are not required to major or minor in the arts. If a student does not wish to provide materials, they are still encouraged to participate in the arts at Denison.

Samples of your work must be submitted to Denison through the Denison Applicant Portal, which is available once the Common Application or Coalition Application has been submitted.
