Program Resources

Fort Lewis College Department of Art & Design Scholarships are available to any declared Art Major (all options) at FLC.  Students must have completed a minimum of 45 or more credit hours (or will complete at the end of Spring term) to apply.

Applications will be available in January 2016.  Click here for more details.


The Art in the Library Competition, a partnership between Reed Library and the Department of Art & Design, is in its fourth year. A call for proposals goes out in September, and a five-member selection committee comprised of two Library employees, a Department of Art & Design faculty member, a student representative, and a Durango community representative selects the next year's featured student artist.

The winner receives a $500 grant to complete the project, which is installed in the Library at the end of the Spring term, and remains on display for a full year.
