Scholarships & Awards

Approximately 9 to 12 scholarships and/or art purchase awards are earned annually by Department Art Majors/Minors through their participation in the spring Student Scholarship Show.

The awards granted were made possible through the generosity of the following individuals who believe in the importance of the contribution that the arts make to society, to the community of Bemidji at large and to Bemidji State University:
