Wabash is looking for students who show genuine promise as artists, actors, musicians, or creative writers and wish to pursue an education at one of the nation's finest liberal arts colleges. After a competitive application and audition process, Fine Arts Fellowships are offered each year to students with demonstrated ability in one or more of the following: visual arts, creative writing, music, and theater. Fine Arts Fellows receive tuition grants worth up to $15,000 per year, regardless of financial need.
