Mathias J. DeVito Scholarship

In May 1995, Mathias J. DeVito retired from his position as The Rouse Company's CEO after 25 years of outstanding leadership. Later that spring, Anthony W. Deering (President and new CEO) asked DeVito how the Company might recognize his countless contributions to the Company and the community; Mr. DeVito suggested the creation of a scholarship fund at MICA to be awarded to students of great talent and promise, personal character, and with an interest in the social and cultural context for the creation of art. In addition to a generous grant from The Rouse Company, the Company's directors and senior management stepped forward to honor Mr. DeVito. These gifts, matched by Mr. DeVito, have created an endowment of a half-million dollars.

Sheri D. Dunn Memorial Scholarship

The Sheri D. Dunn Memorial Scholarship honors the memory of Sheri Dee Dunn '83, a talented artist whose family has had a long history with Maryland Institute College of Art. Both Sheri and Sheri's mom, Bella Dunn, attended MICA; and now her daughter, Rebecca Stern, is enrolled in pursuit of a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Animation. For over three decades, Sheri's love of working artistically steered her to work with celebrities, actors, comedians, and musicians. As a costume designer, Sheri collaborated with famous artists on films and shows such as Tin Men, Major League II, Saturday Night Live and Homicide.

Established by her loving husband, Dr. David Ross, in 2017 and supported by family and friends, the Sheri D. Dunn Memorial Scholarship provides assistance for meritorious and deserving MICA undergraduate students with financial need - and celebrates Sheri's passion for art, education, and life.

Evergreen House Foundation Scholarship

Evergreen House, whose cultural and educational role the Foundation was created to perpetuate, serves as a contemporary gallery and performance venue as well as a historical site and museum.

Garrett, a president of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, and then bequeathed to the Johns Hopkins University, have been open to the public since 1992 for historical tours and for cultural and educational programs. In addition, Evergreen House regularly features exhibitions of work by contemporary artists who use the Garrett family's superb collection of art as a catalyst and foil for their own creative expression.

He studied design and was a talented designer/illustrator, ceramicist, photographer, and jewelry designer. Sadie Feldman attended MICA many years later, receiving a diploma in 1930 and a postgraduate certificate in teacher education in 1931. She, Samson, and their sister Rosetta, now deceased, became loyal friends of MICA, generously supporting the library, the endowed scholarship program, and residencies for visiting artists, designers, and lecturers.
