Schuster Program for the Arts The Schuster Program for the Arts has several components, including: the Music Scholars, Patron Scholars, a Re-Grant Initiative, Studio Art Classes, “Arts Outings”, and the Schuster Fund. Music Awards are available through an audition process and Patron Scholarships are available through an application process. For more information concerning these opportunities, students should contact the Financial Aid Office. The Schuster Re-Grant Initiative is a program Gannon administers, granting funds to local non-profit organizations engaging in cultural activities. Programming initiatives of the Schuster Program for the Arts encompass a non-credit studio art class program and the “Arts Outings” program. Studio Art experiences are offered each semester in the evening on campus. For a nominal fee, students can enroll in these hands-on classes with professional artists. In the past, classes have been offered in photography, clay, mosaic glass, linoleum block print, painting, drawing and much more! “Arts Outings” is a program where Gannon acquires tickets to local and regional arts events and underwrites the costs to students. For a nominal charge, students can attend cultural and visual art events. The Schuster Fund is another funding opportunity at Gannon. Faculty and staff can apply to the fund with an idea for an arts opportunity on campus. Students will have direct impact through the fund from coursework to APB Cultural Events. The fund is open to all full-time employees to apply for support.
