Every year in February, Daemen University hosts All High Art Weekend, which consists of a Portfolio Scholarship Day and the All High Exhibition.
Submission Deadline: February 5th - 12:00pm
If you’re interested in pursuing a career in the arts, design, illustration, or animation, this is your opportunity to have your portfolio evaluated by Daemen professors and be in the running for a scholarship.
Each year, two incoming students are chosen as Portfolio Scholars by the faculty based on the strength of their portfolio, academic potential, personal character, and leadership potential. Portfolio Scholarships are $5,000 and renewed annually provided the recipient maintains a 3.0 or higher GPA.
How to Submit
Students are asked to submit:
- A portfolio of 10-15 pieces of their best work
- A current high school transcript
- Two letters of recommendation OR one letter of recommendation and a brief statement of your artistic interests and goals
Scholarship Portfolios require more pieces than general admission portfolios.
