Scholarships are available for students who show exemplary talent in their artwork. If you have that type of creative passion, we want to talk to you about how studies at St. Ambrose can enrich your talent and help lead to several fulfilling career paths. An art scholarship that recognizes and rewards your special gifts can provide important financial help for your studies.
