Tusculum Creates Scholarship For Congressional Art Competition Winners

Tusculum University has created a new scholarship for participants and award winners of the Congressional Art Competition sponsored by U.S. Representative Phil Roe.

Dr. James Hurley, Tusculum's president, announced Monday that all students who participate in the event and receive a certificate will receive a $1,000 scholarship. Students who finish in second or third place in the annual event will earn a $1,500 scholarship, and the first place winner will receive a $2,000 scholarship.

The scholarships are contingent on a student enrolling in Tusculum as a full-time student. The student will be able to receive the scholarship each of his or her four years as an undergraduate.

Dr. Hurley said the idea of creating the scholarship arose from his visit to the 2018 Congressional Art Competition held on the Tusculum campus. He felt it was important to celebrate Roe's event and its promotion of artistic talent among students in the region.

Tusculum offers concentrations in studio art and visual communication. The program is based in the Shulman Center and contains the Clem Allison Gallery, which enables students, professors, professional artists and community members to showcase their works.
