Alton and Hillery Scavo Award Program

What is the power of art and design for social impact? How has social impact become important in your work and experience at LSU? How will you work for social impact going forward as professional artists, designers and scholars?

The College of Art & Design is pleased to announce the newly established Alton and Hillery Scavo Award on the theme of ‘Social Impact’ for undergraduate students who will graduate in 2023. The Award is intended to assist graduates in their transition from academia to the professional world. Equal awards of $2,500 will be given to one student from each of the Schools of Architecture, Art, Interior Design and Landscape Architecture. The Award application consists of an illustrated essay in which students reflect on their undergraduate educational experience and envision their future within the context of ‘Social Impact.’ The application period opens February 1, 2023 and closes March 20.
