UC Davis Study Abroad maintains a page of recommended programs
for students in Art Studio.
Each year, UC Davis offers four students scholarships –
Manetti Shrem International Residency Scholarships — to attend
the Royal Drawing School’s Drawing Intensive program during the
Fall Quarter. The Royal Drawing
School aims to raise the standard and profile of drawing
through teaching and practice. At its core is the belief that
drawing is crucial for all aspects of visual learning.
This opportunity is open to all UCD seniors who have their
degrees by Spring, and recently graduated Art Studio majors.
The application process typically opens in March and will be
advertised on the art studio website and social media when the
application process is open.
