2017 Van Derlip Awards

Attention December 2016 and May 2017 Graduates: 2017 Van Derlip Awards

In 1923, with income from an endowment fund established by Ethel Morrison Van Derlip, MCAD established the Ethel Morrison Van Derlip Traveling Scholarship.

This year Van Derlip Awards in the amount of $2,500 each will be awarded to a graduating senior in the following departments;
  • Design
  • Fine Arts
  • Media Arts
  • Entrepreneurial Studies (BSc/ADV)
  • MFA in Visual Studies
  • MA in Sustainable Design

Recipients will have exhibited outstanding creative ability. Among the criteria considered will be: originality of ideas, imaginative problem-solving, and skillful execution. It is our hope that the recipients of these awards will use the scholarships for travel and study that will benefit their careers as professional artists and designers.

Those eligible are students who graduated in December 2016 and seniors who will graduate Spring 2017. Submit your application by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 28th on the MCAD Server. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE AFTER THIS DEADLINE.
