Presidential Scholars in the Arts

Presidential Scholars in the Arts

Presidential Scholars in the Arts are awarded each year by the Departments of Fine Arts and Art History, Theatre and Dance, and Music to entering freshmen who have shown promise in aspects of the performing or fine arts. Areas of focus may include ceramics, design, drawing, interior design, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, visual communication, music, theater, technical theater, directing, dance and choreography.

Each scholar works one-on-one with a faculty member and is exposed to our nation's most important museums, galleries, stages and arts organizations. Artistry and creativity in the studio or on the stage are blended with the academic achievement and intellectual rigor for which GW is noted. Pursuing the arts at GW truly is a unique, engaging and rewarding experience and provides unmatched preparation for an arts career.
