The Friends of the College of Fine Arts Scholarship for Books

The central theme of The Friends of the College of Fine Arts Scholarship for Books is to provide scholarship funding to undergraduate students in the College of Fine Arts who are unable to purchase their required course materials due to financial constraints.

The Dean of the College of Fine Arts will be responsible for awarding this scholarship each semester.
