The McAllen Scholarship was created by Dr. and Mrs. Ashley McAllen in memory of Geoffrey McAllen '95.

The scholarship is designated for talented upper-class art majors in recognition of their achievements at the college.

Recipients are awarded $5,000 for the junior year and $5,000 for the senior year. The department has a lot of leeway in administering the funds. For example, a past recipient used her funds to buy studio supplies and travel to art museums she had never before visited.
