Seton Hill Offers Both Need-Based & Merit-Based Aid

Traditional undergraduate students at Seton Hill University are considered for both financial need-based aid and merit-based aid. 

Financial need-based aid is awarded based on the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and includes grants, loans and work-study employment. 

Merit-based aid, including a wide variety of scholarships, is awarded to incoming students on the basis of academic excellence, demonstrated achievement in extracurricular activities or special talents. Art majors must successfully complete a portfolio review to be admitted into the Art Program and to be considered for art scholarships.

The majority of our competitive financial aid packages combine need and merit-based aid. 

Scholarships for Art Majors Include:

  • Division of Visual and Performing Arts Scholarships - renewable awards that vary from $1000 to full-tuition annually. 
  • The Josefa Filkosky Scholarship - This scholarship will be awarded annually to a junior or senior art major who has consistently shown outstanding creativity and involvement in the production of challenging and high quality art works and who also shows promise of being serious in their pursuit of continued growth as an artist and in their knowledge of art.
  • The Hensler-Irvine Scholarship - This scholarship is awarded to an incoming freshman based on portfolio quality.

You Don’t Have to Apply for Seton Hill Scholarships

All incoming art students who submit their portfolio for review by February 25, 2015 are automatically considered for all available Seton Hill scholarships! Scholarship awards will be announced on or near March 15, 2015.
