The SVA Alumni Society recently announced the 2012 recipients of scholarship awards supporting thesis projects and portfolio development for graduating students. Each year, the Society provides many awards and scholarships to students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in all majors offered by the College. For the Scholarship Awards, the Society invites students to submit proposals for ambitious projects. Proposals are vetted through a rigorous process by professionals across arts disciplines and the winners are chosen to receive awards ranging from $500 to $1500 each.
The Alumni Society currently administers the Alumni Scholarship Fund, whose programs include Alumni Scholarship Awards, the Housing Scholarship Award, the Merit Award and more than a dozen named scholarship funds. All awards from the Scholarship Fund are supported by generous donations from SVA alumni, friends, family, and other supporters, and one hundred percent of the monies donated to the Society are used to fund student awards.
