The Office of Financial Aid located in Heth Hall, Room 169, is the clearing-house for information about a variety of different scholarships, both need-based and merit-based. In addition to the scholarships available through Financial Aid, each spring the Department of Design awards merit-based scholarships funded by the Arts Society.

Students who have already completed at least nine credit hours after declaring a major in the department, and who meet the minimal GPA requirements (at least 3.2 in the major and 2.8 overall) are eligible to apply for the Design Arts Society scholarship.
