The Conway or Proetz Scholarship in Art

The Fred Conway or the Esther & Arthur Proetz Scholarship recognizes superior artistic and academic performance. Washington University’s College of Art offers the Conway Scholarship or Proetz Scholarship, in alternate years, to an entering first-year student who plans to pursue the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.


Each College of Art applicant who submits a digital portfolio containing 10-20 pieces by January 5, 2018, will be considered; no separate scholarship application is required. See below for details on what to include in the portfolio.

On-Campus Interviews for Finalists

After reviewing applications and portfolios, the Scholarship Committee will select finalists. These students will be invited to visit campus for personal interviews with the faculty review committee. To remain eligible for the scholarship, finalists will be required to bring original work for review by the Scholarship Committee during the interview weekend, March 22-24, 2018. Washington University will pay for finalists' round-trip expenses within the United States and their expenses while in St. Louis during these four days.

On the basis of the personal interview and portfolio reviews, the committee will designate the Conway or Proetz Scholars (whichever is to be awarded that year) in April.

  1. On your application for admission to the Class of 2022, select a major in the College of Art.
