Communications and Theatre Scholarships

The School of Fine Arts has numerous scholarship opportunities available to its majors.  While no application for admission is required for Fine Arts programs other than that required by the university, scholarships require a separate application and depending on the area, an interview, audition or portfolio review.

In addition to the Fairmont Undergraduate Scholarships (FUS) which are allocated to the School of Fine Arts, the following endowed scholarships for Music are also available:

  • Fairmont Concert Association Music Endowed Scholarship
  • Blanche Kinney Fine Arts Endowed Scholarship
  • B. J. O’Dell Sherman Endowed Scholarship
  • Virginia P & Richard P. Wellock Music Endowed Scholarship

The Blanche Kinney Endowment is also used by the School of Fine Arts to support visiting artists, master classes and gallery exhibits. The fund is also used to support student travel to attend fine arts events in places like Pittsburgh, New York, Washington, D.C., Stratford, Ontario, and London. This endowment is one of the largest maintained by the Fairmont State University Foundation, Inc.

Fairmont State University also maintains Participation Scholarships that are granted to students, regardless of their major, for participation in activities such as the Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, Collegiate Singers, Masquers Theatre Productions, Debate or the Art Gallery.
