Art Merit Scholarship – Students planning to enter The University of Mississippi as art or art history majors may be considered for Art Merit Scholarships to be awarded for eight consecutive semesters (not including summer). This scholarship is available to freshman and transfer students and is based on their art portfolio. Non-resident recipients will be granted a partial waiver of non-resident fees.

Roy Frank Finger Memorial Scholarship – Named in honor of Roy Frank Finger, an MFA Printmaking student who passed away in 1975, this scholarship is awarded to a Printmaking student (undergraduate or graduate.) It’s awarded once a year to a deserving student or students.

Susan Barksdale Howorth Council Scholarship Endowment – Susan Barksdale Howorth of Oxford had decided to pursue a master’s degree in art when her life was cut short. Her great interests and passions in both creating art and providing educational opportunities for others will live on through University of Mississippi students who receive scholarships in her name.
This endowment has been created under the umbrella of the Ole Miss Women’s Council for Philanthropy (OMWC). The $100,000 fund was created by a gift from her husband, Circuit Court Judge Andrew K. Howorth of Oxford, as well as memorials from family and friends. First preference for the scholarship awards will be given to art majors.
