The Mavis C. Pitman Endowment, in the Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts, awards three cash fellowships each year to visual arts studio and film track majors.

The fellowships support the creation of an original body of work to be exhibited in the Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts gallery in the Rice Media Center during the spring semester.
Fellowship recipients are responsible for creating an original body of work to be exhibited (open media); curating, hanging, and setting up the exhibition; creating an original graphic (representing and including all three artists) for exhibition announcements (postcards, space on the department website, and inclusion in the department calendar); preparing a ten-minute exhibition talk about the work; and coordinating the exhibition’s opening reception.
