- Art History Majors: Original research paper on some aspect of art architecture or art criticism
The Recipient of the award will be an undergraduate junior or senior (including graduating seniors) that has maintained a 3.5 GPA within the Art + Design Department and a 3.0 cumulative GPA. The student must be a Painting and/or Drawing major and have completed at least 15 credit hours in those courses. The recipient must submit three letters of recommendation using the online application from Painting, Drawing, and/or Art History faculty at Missouri State University.
Painting and Drawing faculty serving on the Art + Design Scholarship Selection will select one student out of those applying through the online application to receive the Hugh C. and Faith A.
