Bucknell's Arts Merit Scholarships range from 2,500 to 20,000 annually to selected first-year students who plan to pursue studies in art & art history, creative writing, dance, film/media studies, literary studies, music (major or non-major) or theatre (performance or design and technology). Recipients will receive notifications along with their admissions decisions.
Financial need is not a requirement, and the scholarship is automatically renewed for second, third and fourth years as long as recipients maintain satisfactory academic progress and meet requirements of the program. The application process includes an on-campus component, and recipients are selected by Bucknell faculty members. Bucknell's Arts Merit Scholarship recognizes applicants with extraordinary talents in the arts.
