Three Art and Art History Alumni each receive a $10,333 Dr. Annie Smith Graduate Scholarship
Professor Annie Smith (1940 – 2007) assumed the position of Art and Art History Program Coordinator in 1976. Over the next six years, she reassessed the existing three-year degree program in art education and developed the present professional fine-art focus of the Art and Art History Specialist (four-year) degree program. In 1982 for the first time, the program offered its students fourth-year courses in both studio and art history.
Alumni of the joint Sheridan/University of Toronto Mississauga Art and Art History Program enrolled in an MA-level program are eligible to apply for the Dr. Annie Smith Graduate Scholarship in the ten years following their graduation. Since the award’s launch in 2010, winners have pursued a broad range of graduate study such as fine art studio, art history, design, architecture, landscape architecture, cultural production and business among others.
The three winners of Sheridan’s annually awarded Dr. Annie Smith Graduate Scholarship in Art and Art History are as follows: Grace Bedwell, currently studying in the MA Art History Program at Western University; Norma Chan, currently studying in the MFA Program in Design and Technology Program at Parsons, and Kelly Hines, currently studying in the Trent University MA Program in Theory, Culture and Politics.
Last year’s recipients of $10,500 each were: Karly Boileau, Masters of Art History and Visual Studies program at the University of Guelph; Kelly Kornet, Masters of Design of Strategic Foresight and Innovation program at the Ontario College of Art and Design University.
Next year’s application deadline will be November 23rd, 2015.
