The good news: There are many college scholarships for students interested in mastering the visual arts. Foundations and other nonprofits fund many scholarships for visual arts majors. Others are awarded by groups affiliated with state and local governments. Common requirements to be eligible for these scholarships include academic achievement and financial need. Many also require students to demonstrate some talent in the arts, often through the submission of a portfolio. While some scholarships for visual arts majors require students to study at a specific school, others are made available to students enrolled in any accredited institution, including 4-year schools, community colleges and graduate schools.
