How to Prepare for your Scholarship Applications

Official Transcript

Request an official transcript from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in Room 124 of the Nigh University Center. For more information, call (405) 974-2727 or email

Personal Artist Statement

Most CFAD scholarship applications require a 250-word personal artist statement describing your academic interests and how they relate to your career objectives. You can use the same statement for each scholarship.

Faculty Letters of Recommendation

Some scholarship applications require letters of recommendation from faculty members. You will submit their email addresses during the application and they will receive an online form to complete. It’s best practice to ask their permission in advance and give them plenty of time to do their part.

Artwork / Essay / Additional Questions

Some scholarship applications require original artwork, an essay or answering additional questions. Please see the individual scholarship criteria for specific requirements.

NOTE: All requirements are based on your status during the upcoming academic year, unless otherwise stated (i.e. if a scholarship is for a junior, you must be a junior during the 2018-2019 academic year).
