Clare Wedding Student Enrichment Scholarship 

*DUE April 9, 2018*
Through the generosity of Randy and Celia Wedding, The Clare Wedding Student Enrichment Endowment provides support for students in the History of Art and Visual Culture (HAVC) Department.  The fund is administered by the department chair and may be used for a variety of purposes that benefit undergraduates related to two primary themes: 
  1. The study of art of the Pacific Rim countries and communities, including Oceania (the Pacific Islands).  In the Western Hemisphere, this pertains to art focused on the West Coast.
  2. The support of students pursuing practical experiences in the curation and display of art and visual culture.
Scholarship funds can be used to:
  • Provide students with internships at accredited museums, including supplementing resources for students who have secured their own internships (e.g., assist with housing and travel expenses)
  • Provide funds for courses that offer students practical curatorial or exhibition experience (e.g., instructional or materials funds)
  • Provide funds for students to pursue independent research projects (e.g., assist with travel and research expenses)
  • Fund field trips to museums, other cultural institutions, or conferences
  • Bring guest speakers to campus for HAVC courses or special events
Scholarships awarded to students in the winter can be used during the spring, summer, and/or fall quarters.
