QUINCY — Quincy University’s art department recently awarded two scholarships for the fall 2022 semester.

Laura VanNice, an incoming transfer student, was awarded a $5,000 scholarship. VanNice previously studied at Moberly Area Community College. VanNice is from Hannibal, Mo., and pursuing a degree in graphic design.

High school senior Aliya Callaway received a $3,000 scholarship. Callaway is from Advance, Mo., majoring in graphic design.

“The Quincy University Art Department created the art talent search competition as a way to raise the awareness for new or transfer students to obtain scholarships,” said Karl Warma, professor of art, in a press release. “QU has a long tradition of providing scholarships to art students, but the growing financial need of students in art programs meant we needed more program visibility.”

The selection process was held during the School of Fine Arts and Communication Showcase on Feb. 19. Participants submitted an application, portfolio and had personal interviews with QU art department faculty. Recipients were chosen at the discretion of the art faculty on the talent and personal vision of the candidate.

“We are so fortunate to have students bringing their developing talents to our art and design department at QU,” assistant professor Gary Meacher said. “Every year we have the chance to reward those talents with our annual scholarship competition.”
