Lydia Siedschlag Scholarship

By generous donation, special scholarships have been established by Lydia Siedschlag for art students living in Siedschlag Hall, a dormitory for women. Siedschlag Hall is scheduled for demolition in the spring 2021 semester. The on-campus residence hall for Fine Arts students has been temporarily relocated to Harvey Hall as exciting changes continue on the Western campus. All qualifying students will automatically be considered for this scholarship upon successful application. The awards are made at the annual Frostic School of Art Awards Ceremony in April and are effective for the duration of the next academic year. Previous recipients may apply in subsequent years.
