Stark Family Award
The Department of Art History and Music has received a generous donation from the Stark Family to enable art history majors to experience the art treasures of Europe. Every year, the department awards a travel fellowship to an art history major to be used toward European travel.
By December 1 of each autumn, junior art history majors are invited to submit a proposal for a travel grant for the forthcoming spring or summer break in order to experience the art treasures of Europe first hand. The proposal should outline the student's goals, projected itinerary, expenses and the student's financial need. The Department will award the prize based on the student's proposal, academic records, and financial need.

The Vasari Symposium
The Vasari Symposium is named for the sixteenth-century Italian artist/scholar Giorgio Vasari, whose publication The Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects (1550; 1568) provided one of the earliest and most influential examples of art historical writing.
Each year one Fordham College Rose Hill student and one Fordham College Lincoln Center student are selected to serve as "Vasari Lecturers" and present original research at a spring symposium open to the Fordham community and guests. At the Vasari Symposium the previous year's winner of the Stark Prize also gives a short presentation on his or her travels.
