This year’s online exhibition will take place from March 22 – April 9, 2021, with a virtual award ceremony scheduled for April 7, 2021. The Student Award Exhibition began in the spring of 1999 to recognize student accomplishment, to demonstrate the University’s support of artistic excellence and diversity in student artwork, and to provide students the opportunity to have their work included in the University’s permanent collection. No Entry Fee Required.

Submission deadlines and guidelines will be strictly enforced. Please read the following prospectus for important information. A completed submission form must accompany your entry (up to three artworks may be submitted per form)
