Dean’s Fellowships may be awarded to applicants in any SCAD graduate program or geographic location who have been determined, through the admission process, to be exceptionally strong candidates for advanced study and scholarship. The number of fellowships awarded on an annual basis may vary according to the number of applicants and their qualifications. Students awarded a Dean’s Fellowship are expected to be strong leaders in their respective schools and departments, and are assigned specific duties relative to the needs of the department and the qualifications of the students.
To be considered for a Dean’s Fellowship, applicants must present a cumulative undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.5 (on a four-point scale), and must submit a superior-quality portfolio and statement of purpose. Qualified semi-finalists are invited to participate in an interview to determine final selection.
