J. George Jones Fine Arts Advisory Board Scholarship

The College of Fine Arts Advisory Board (FAAB) was established in 1992 by the J. George Jones, Jr. Trust to provide scholarship support for students within the College of Fine Arts. The FAAB awards annual scholarships to Fine Art undergraduate majors who have demonstrated excellence in their chosen field. The FAAB Scholarship is $2,000, divided in equal payments in the fall and spring semesters. This application requires a personal essay, a current Degree Audit Report, and a recommendation letter from a faculty member. Only complete applications will be considered. Applicants must be a current, full-time declared undergraduate major in the College of Fine Arts and have Junior or Senior status for the 2020-21 academic year. Applicants must have a minimum 3.0 GPA. Recipients of the FAAB Scholarship must maintain full-time status, a 3.0 GPA, and remain in good standing within their department.

The FAAB Scholarship Committee will conduct interviews in March 2020. There will be no interviews conducted during Spring Break. All finalists must make themselves available for a fifteen-minute interview during the assigned time period. Finalists will be contacted through their uMail to set up an interview time.
