2021-2022 Scholarship Applications


They are back! With great pleasure, Kappa Pi announces the reinstatement of scholarships for student members. Historically, the scholarships made available have only rewarded those of our members specializing in visual art mediums; however, Kappa Pi is excited to introduce an additional scholarship dedicated to showcasing the work and contribution of art historians.

The scholarship application period will open on December 1, 2021, and it will close at 11:59 pm CST on February 28, 2022. Students whose membership is active during the entirety of the application will be eligible for this round of scholarships. There are no application fees and all eligible members are encouraged to apply. Applications for more than one scholarship will be allowed. However, each member may only be awarded one scholarship.

Please read each description carefully and have all relevant information available and ready to submit at the time of application. Applications that do not include the required information and properly formatted files will be disqualified from the review process. Information submitted may be used in annual publications and for promotional purposes.

Below is detailed information about the upcoming available scholarships.
