    Utah Scholarships!

    I'd like to see one of these for every state, I know it's hard for anyone especially us *cough* generally more eccentric artist types to figure this sort of thing out on their own, so let's make this easy for our community.

    Then, then as we become amazing artists we can fight state to state for dominance and eventually take over the world.

    Also here is the link for Utah's Local Artist's Group here at CA.org;
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=21955


    Going to Start with the Bigger Schools and Colleges:

    NOTE: Deadlines are for specific scholarships or institutions, they will change. There are also other options than just those listed.
    ALSO NOTE: Be sure to check out other sections of this sub-forum, there are many national and even internation scholarships you are going to apply for. (see that, I'm making you do it!)

    BYU: Provo
    Scholarship for current term (Spring '07) due Feb15th
    http://cfac.byu.edu/index.php?id=1000
    BYU I think has the best program in the state, Emily? Back me up on this!

    U of U: Salt Lake City
    http://www.finearts.utah.edu/scholarship.html

    Utah State: Logan
    Deadline for the Hubbard Family Scholarship is Feb 28, 2007 (Spring '07 Term)
    http://www.hass.usu.edu/Document/index.asp?Parent=7226

    Snow College: Ephraim
    All materials must be received by March 1 for new freshmen.
    http://www.snow.edu/~art/pages/scholarships.html

    UVSC: Orem
    http://www.uvsc.edu/scholarships/


    The Highschool students: Next up is you wee ones

    First step is to check your local highschool pages; there are people in your highschool who actually want to help you! I know, it's shocking. Seriously though, you youngin's have a leg up and preference! Sniff, the children are our future.

    Here is a sampling I stole from Emily, check them all as they should all apply to you - to apply for. So apply.
    OHS
    TVHS
    PHS
    THS (pdf)

    NFAA:
    "This program provides recognition and awards to young 17- and 18- year old artists in the performing, literary and visual arts."

    Yes! Thank you for starting this thread, Tom!

    I will certainly back you up on the BYU thing, though I may be biased since that's where I went.

    Seriously though, BYU had four students get into the Society of Illustrators Student Competition last year. One won $2,000 and another got $1,000, so I think it's a pretty good place.

    Something of note for us Utahns,
    Came across some Atelier style training here in Utah; workshops for the masses and private instruction for a select few is what I gather.

    I also found the website for Wander Lane Studios, which is in Salt Lake City.

    It looks they have been having sculpture classes most recently, but have also done figure drawing and painting.

    Thank you thank you thank you thank you

    no seriously I live here in utah, and I'm freaked out about how to get scholarships in art, and where I should go.

    Um what school do you recomend going to around here. I'm looking at the U of U but not sure. I want a degree in Illustration and Filmstudies with emphasis on animation.

    Its so cool to have someone so experienced on this site who lives in Utah.

    Damnit, I don't think I could earn a single one of these. I really need to get my arse in gear because I feel like I couldn't stand my own in any of these scholarship compititions.

    If you're looking in-state; not to mention you said you were looking for Illustration and Animation - go to BYU.

    Now, scholarships - you never know until you try. What is the worst that can happen? You don't get it? That's not even a consequence it's so easy So, which one are you going to try first?

    The animation program at BYU is VERY GOOD.

    From http://visualarts.byu.edu/
    "The animation program will add two more 'student Emmy' awards from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Foundation to their collection. BYU films have won five of 18 animation student Emmys since 2004, along with other awards at film festivals worldwide."

    Graduates from the program get very good jobs in the industry. I have several friends who have done well and are working for studios out in California. Pixar is stopping by there this month to look for interns.

    Idiot Apathy (Tom) and I are researching scholarships for this thread. You can help us and hopefully find some scholarships that would be good for you as well.

    I don't know how I didn't see this before, but here's some more scholarship info from the University of Utah.

    http://www.art.utah.edu/arthome.html (You have choose "scholarships" from the drop menu in the upper left, then choose "scholarships" from the second drop down menu.)

    Here's the links to two pdf files from the page:
    Scholarship info--some basic information
    Scholarships--a list of 16 different scholarships

    Also, the U of U Financial Aid and Scholarships page.

    Okay thanks so much you guys for telling me about the animation program at BYU. You guys got me convinced and determined: I'm going to BYU darnit.
    My plan is the same as before only slightly different. I want to do a double major in Illustration and animation. Seeing as BYU actually as a dedicated animation program.

    I only have a couple of concerns: Not being mormon, what should I be aware of in terms of applying, planning to apply there, and taking courses there? What are the rules you mentioned in my other post?

    Also, what should I be doing to prepare for applying there? What kind stuff should I put into my portfolio? I'm sorry but their site information doesn't have anything on requirements for illustration portfollios. I e-mailed the secretary but I wanted your advice too.

    Thanks so much guys, you have really helped. You might have changed my life just now.

    ps-sorry for all the questions, I'm just really nervous right now.

    Hey Wake

    I'll try to answer some of your questions.

    Like most universities, BYU will want you to take some General Education classes, such as writing, science etc. They will also want you to take a certain amount of religion classes. I think some of the religion classes are different for non-Mormons than they are for Mormons, though.
    Now, you have to fulfill these requirements if you want to graduate with a degree, but if you don't care about that you could probably get away with taking what you wanted.

    BYU has this thing called the Honor Code, which is a list of rules all students must live by. I think most universities have something similar which says "I promise to be honest in my schoolwork and not cheat or plagiarize, etc." BYU has some extra requirements such as no drinking, smoking, or drugs, no pre-marital sex, etc. You would have to live by these rules as a student.

    If I were you, I would try to get good grades (BYU can be hard to get in to), I would concentrate on figure drawing, and I would go to the Portfolio Day held at the Springville Art Museum (see post #9 in this thread). If you are worried about your grades, this is a good thing to do because you can be admitted automatically if you are offered a scholarship.

    Regarding what to study, I would major in Animation and take as many Illustration classes as you can. Doing both is a heavy load and the school might want you to focus on one or the other. But I know quite a few Animation students do something similar and sign up for Illustration classes.

    Hope this helps.

    Who are you Emily?

    Umm, this is my first reply I guess. I was just wondering who Emily is? emily g, the administrator. She knows a lot about utah scholarships, and BYU applications and stuff. (if she's reading)-- Do you go to High Schools around the valley to tell students about BYU?

    She's like an art ninja, shrouded in secrecy. I heard she dropkicked Chuck Norris once too.

    Hahaha.

    ryan.liamg, I went to BYU and graduated from there in 2001.
    I don't go around to high schools, I'm currently studying art with William Whitaker and trying to get into the gallery scene.
