Up to 8 Creative & Performing Arts Awards: between $3,000 and $6,000 annually, and renewable for 4 years will be awarded. The primary criterion for the Creative & Performing Arts Award is the student’s potential for contributing to the quality of the arts at ISU. A student must enroll as an Art and Design major. The award is forfeited if the student changes his/her major.
