The William Hyde Irwin and Susan Benteen Irwin Scholarship is our most prestigious student scholarship. At the end of Fall quarter, thirty students are nominated by full time faculty (ladder and lecturer) to submit work for competition. Ladder faculty meet as a group at the beginning of Winter quarter to select the year's Irwin Scholarship recipients. Exceptional students from each area are invited to apply in Winter. Selection is based on the excellence of the nominees' creative work. Twelve students receive $2,500 and a highly-publicized group show in the Mary Porter Sesnon Gallery during Spring quarter.
