Qualified admitted students are awarded a merit-based fellowship of $4,000 per semester in the form of a tuition reduction to the above per semester total. Admitted students who have previously demonstrated high levels of academic excellence and whose professional experience and backgrounds are exemplary and will enhance the profile of the student body may be considered for additional fellowships. These fellowships are awarded by the admissions committee based upon submitted application materials. The program does not offer needs-based fellowships. CGU is committed to honoring the awarded level of fellowship support throughout a student’s time in coursework as long as Satisfactory Academic Progress is maintained.
This fellowship is awarded to one academically-motivated student with 3.5 GPA (or higher) and a demonstrated commitment to the arts. The award of up to $2,950 per semester will go toward subsidizing travel fees to allow for LA students to experience art in different global markets and contexts.
The Squire Foundation is committed to the advancement of artists, curators and all manner of creative individuals through elevating the arts from the community level up. Its Executive Director, Ashley Woods Hollister, is an alumna of the Sotheby’s Institute of Art- London (SIA). Ashley’s own experiences on field study trips, during her time with SIA, are a driving force in her work advancing the mission of the Squire Foundation. The Squire Foundation is pleased to award this fellowship to one student of high merit with an exemplary record of dedication to the arts and creative expression.
The fellowship will be awarded each year to one student who has demonstrated high academic merit and achievement. The award of $5,900 per year over five years ($29,500 total) will subsidize the student’s field study, which is an integral part of the Sotheby’s Institute experience.
The fellowship is made possible by the generous support of Shannon and Peter Loughrey (Sotheby’s alumnus) who own and operate LAMA, the first auction house to specialize in selling 20th century Modern Art & Design. Mr. and Mrs. Loughrey have been constant supporters of the Los Angeles campus since its founding in 2013. They have opened their home for events, participated in public panels, provided employment opportunities for our alumni and students, and joined faculty and students on international field studies. They are committed to the arts, arts education, and arts leadership in Los Angeles, and the field-study fellowship will enable them to have further impact on Sotheby’s Institute students by supporting travel at Claremont Graduate University.
All schools at Claremont Graduate University participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and the VA will match the same amount as the institution.
You may be eligible if:
- You served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001, of at least 36 months
- You were honorably discharged from active duty for a service connected disability and you served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001
- You are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria listed above.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition and fees. You may have tuition and fees that exceed that amount if you are attending a private institution, graduate school or attending in an out-of-state status. If you are enrolled at a Yellow Ribbon participating institution and the tuition and fees exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition or fees, additional funds may be available for your education program without an additional charge to your entitlement.
Institutions that voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with the VA choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed. The VA will match that amount and issue payment directly to the institution.
