Current majors within the Art + Design Department of Missouri State University are eligible for scholarships to attend a one-week workshop at the legendary Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts in Tennessee. These scholarships cover full tuition with a small stipend to help offset travel and material costs.
Students who have attended from the department previously have described the experience as ‘life-altering’. The caliber of faculty and students, new techniques, and positive environment has had positive effects on these students work as they finish their degrees after returning to Missouri State.

Workshop topics are wide-ranging in arts and crafts. More information about the offerings can be found here.
For the past two years, department faculty have been nominating two students to attend. This year two scholarships are available and if you are interested – please contact Vonda Yarberry, Department Head of Art + Design (firstname.lastname@example.org) and she will guide you through the process to apply.
Funding for these scholarships is made possible through a partnership with the Windgate University Fellows Scholarship Program, Arrowmont, and the Department of Art + Design. The department faculty feel it is especially important for artists and designers to seek multiple perspectives in their education and the Arrowmont program is an internationally recognized visual art education center.
