Award Process and Criteria

The James J. Consoli Scholarship Committee, comprised of the Graduate Art Therapy & Counseling Program Director and Core Faculty, will select the winner based on completeness of the application and the evaluation of the following:

  1. The artwork’s ability to stand on its own merit as a work of art.
  2. The congruency between the written statement and the artwork.
  3. Conceptualization of the theme: Development of your artist/therapist identity.

EVMS faculty will determine the winner and the Office of Financial Aid will notify the award winner during the summer. The winner of the scholarship will receive a certificate, a financial tuition remission, and will have their artwork and written statement prominently displayed on campus for one year.
