The stellar quality of our academic community is key to the success of the Department of Visual Arts. Our program is one of the few that combines its MFA and Ph.D. programs in a single scholarly and artistic community -- a community where exchange and dialogue between art practitioners, historians, and critics is openly encouraged.  But we can't maintain that community without the resources to recruit the best and brightest students. Your gifts are needed to help promising graduate students study and pioneer new creative territory. By offering competitive fellowships, scholarships, and awards, the Department of Visual Arts will be able to encourage and enable talented scholars and artists to excel.  Your gifts will provide the opportunity to establish a lasting legacy at UC San Diego.

For more information regarding these gift opportunities, please contact Michele Palma, Director of Development, at (858) 534-9043 or mipalma@ucsd.edu.
