Art Student Resources> Scholarships> Rowe Scholarship
William Thomas Rowe Endowed Art Scholarship, Deadline: Monday, April 9th at Noon
Tome Rowe, much beloved, long-time art faculty, taught drawing and painting at St. Mary's College from 1966 until his retirement in the early 1990's. He received his Master of Fine Arts from the Maryland Art Institute and was one of the founding members of the '6 Realists' group of Baltimore. He was a firm believer that artists should learn how to create art from direct observation and his students fondly remember long hours spent outdoors painting landscapes or in the studio laboring over still lives. This scholarship, awarded annually to an art student demonstrating significant realist skills was established by Jane and Nancie Rowe in memory of their father who died in 2004.
The William Thomas Rowe Endowed Art Scholarship is awarded annually to an art major for the purpose of defraying the cost of his or her art education, including the purchase of art supplies, art-related travel, SMCM tuition, art workshops, or residencies.
