Scholarships and Departmental Awards

Art History Awards

The Art History program recognizes the work of outstanding Art History Majors with two scholarships.

  • The Edwina Graff Hughes Johnston Award is given to a rising senior who has shown excellence in academic work and active participation in the Art History program.
  • The Helen B. Rippy Award is given to a strong applicant with an above-average GPA in Art History courses at Elon. This student must also be an active participant in the Art History program.

Applications for the Johnston and Rippy Awards are available at the beginning of the spring semester and are due on March 14th to Dr. Gatti or Dr. Ringelberg. Recipients are announced at the Elon College Awards Program in May.

Art Awards

The studio area of the Art & Art History department is pleased to offer merit-based scholarships each academic year. These awards are made possible through the generosity of donors and may provide modest funds for student-artists in each class rank. Scholarships are credited towards the student’s tuition account for the following academic year. Students who have received scholarships for the previous year must reapply for the upcoming year. (Art Department scholarships do not automatically roll over.)

Art majors and minors are eligible to apply for the following scholarships:

The JUDGE T. WARREN SCHOLARSHIP is designated for incoming first-year students, rising sophomores, and rising juniors in the visual arts program who currently have GPA of 3.0 or higher and will be enrolled at Elon during the upcoming academic year.

The EDWINA GRAFF HUGHES JOHNSON SCHOLARSHIP is designated for rising seniors in the visual arts program who currently have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and will be enrolled at Elon following academic year.  

Applications for scholarships are not available at this time.  For more information please contact Professor Michael Sanford.
