Pursuing a graduate degree can be a major financial investment. At UMKC, we do our best to offer support and connect students to funding resources.
Current and prospective graduate students in Art History and Studio Art are encouraged to apply for our department’s graduate assistantships (GA). The GA assignment and responsibilities are determined based on the student’s experiences and merit in addition to the needs of the department. Common assignments include providing teaching support to a particular faculty member or working in the UMKC Gallery of Art.
There are several scholarships available exclusively to students in the Department of Art and Art History.
Currently enrolled students must fill out the Continuing Scholarship Application by March 1 to be considered for all departmental scholarships, as well as many college- and university-wide scholarships.
The College of Arts and Sciences Scholarship Office has more information and a full list of department- and college-level scholarships available to current students.
The UMKC Financial Aid Office has more information regarding university-wide scholarships.
