Howard has a range of scholarships available, including some targeted towards fine arts students, which you can read about here: https://finearts.howard.edu/admissions/scholarships-financial-aid.

Spelman College is also known for an excellent fine arts department, with a focus on art history and studio art, and offers the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art as a resource. Moreover, Spelman provides various art-related scholarships, which you might find worth looking into.

Lastly, Hampton University's fine arts program is notable as well, with facilities like the Hampton University Museum, which is the oldest African American museum in the United States.
