Current Scholarships

Jay Paul Bell and Julie Kiefer-Bell Art Scholarship

The Jay Paul Bell and Julie Kiefer Bell Art Scholarship is funded by a gift from former art students of the Art Department at St. Cloud State University, where both received their BA and MA degrees. After receiving their MFA degrees from UW-Madison, they moved to Illinois where both taught art; Jay at Northern Illinois University, and Julie at Northern Illinois University and Kishwaukee College.


Eligibility Criteria:
Students must have completed 48 credits by the time the scholarship is received. Also, students must be admitted to an art major and pursuing either a BFA studio art degree with a emphasis in graphic design or another fine arts discipline, or a BA Art Degree or a BS Art Education Degree. Students pursuing a degree in art history are ineligible for this scholarship.

Ralph Heimdahl Art Scholarship

The Ralph Heimdahl Art Scholarship is funded by a gift from a former Professor of Art at St. Cloud State University. He was a recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award in 1966. He began the ”Bugs Bunny” comic strip for Warner Brothers and Western Publishing in 1948.

Nancy Levy Memorial Scholarship in Art History

This scholarship honors former SCSU professor Nancy Levy. Dr. Nancy Levy taught Art History at SCSU from September, 1992 until her passing in 2010. She is fondly remembered as a wonderfully informed and enthusiastic professor. She not only brought her deep knowledge and learning of the subject of Art History to her students, but her joy and delight in imparting this knowledge inspired many to enter the field over the years. It is hoped the scholarship honoring her memory will help enrich the lives of those students who become its future recipients.


Eligibility Criteria:
Scholarships are awarded to undergraduate students with an art history major or will have completed at least one upper-division course in art history when the scholarship is disbursed. Students must submit a brief essay expressing their interest in art history and financial need as relates to the cost of pursuing a degree in art (books, art supplies, etc). Priority is given to art history majors but will not exclude non art history majors in the selection process.

 

May Bowle Art Scholarship

Funds derived from the May Bowle, a charity dance held each Spring at either St. Cloud State University, College of St. Benedict, or St. John’s University. Proceeds from the event go toward fine arts scholarships at the three schools.


Eligibility Criteria:
Scholarships are awarded to undergraduates, incoming freshmen and/or transfer students.


Merle Sykora Art Scholarship

The Merle Sykora Art Scholarship is funded by a gift from a Professor Emeritus of Art at St. Cloud State University. Nationally known for his textiles and weavings, Merle has had over 60 exhibitions and over 40 commissioned pieces. The academic banners used in every undergraduate commencement ceremony at the St Cloud State University campus were designed by Merle. Merle’s interest in the Czech Republic has lasted his entire lifetime. This fund is created in recognition of a career dedicated to advancing the fine arts for the benefit of students at St Cloud State University.


Eligibility Criteria:
Scholarship recipients must have completed the first-year foundations program and are pursuing a degree in BS Art Education, BA in Art, or a BFA in one of the Fine Arts area of emphasis.
