About the program:

Miller Arts Scholars is an interdisciplinary arts program comprised of student researchers, creators, interpreters, collaborators and advocates actively engaged in the arts and beyond within the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Virginia. Unlike the situation found at most large research universities, The J. Sanford Miller Family Arts Scholars are part of a small group of undergraduate students who have increased access to resources in the arts at the University of Virginia including personal introductions to our most distinguished arts faculty. Our scholars benefit from priority enrollment, increased engagement with the artscommunity, Miller Arts Scholars advising, and access to research support funds during the third and fourth year of study. The J. Sanford Miller Family Arts Scholars is overseen by the departments of Studio ArtDramaMusic, and Dance. We are also accepting applications from artists who do work in Creative Writing and from artists who do not strictly belong to one discipline.

Eligibility: 

Rising second or third-year students actively engaged in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Virginia are eligible to apply to be a J. Sanford Miller Family Arts Scholar. Each year, the faculty advisory committee admits up to four scholars in each of the five disciplines: dance, drama, music, studio art, and creative writing. Artists who do not strictly belong to one discipline have also been welcomed into the program. Rising second-year applicants are strongly encouraged to major (or minor in the case of dance) in the arts. Rising third-year applicants should be planning to declare a major in the arts (or minor in dance) or present evidence of major equivalent engagement in the arts to be eligible. This program is only for College of Arts and Sciences students.
