Hi quail-ga,

My search brought me to the US News & World Report website. This
magazine conducts nationwide ranking surveys in a many areas, and its
college rankings report is particularly well-known.

I found a tool that lets you search their "America's Best Colleges
2002" report in detail. It is found at this page :

I then zoned in on the requirements you specified :
- Majors offered : Fine/Studio arts
- Varsity sports : Women's, Cross-country, Track (indoor), Track
(outdoor), Track and field (indoor), Track and field (outdoor) 
(multiple select using Ctrl key)
- Scholarship money available : checked Yes

The query then returned 176 institutions.

I wasn't able to sort these down further by rankings, but there is a
detailed description on each school, with its ranking in the report.
You can "save" each school and compare your selections with each other
online. Since I am not aware of your other requirements (cost,
selectivity, diversity, location etc as available on the search tool),
I am leaving you the option of refining your search further at this
page. Feel free to visit each school in your final narrowed-down
group, and take a look at how they rank.

You will probably like to refer to the page that describes the
rankings :

Please also view this page that ranks the schools for "Most students
receiving athletic scholarships" :

If we use the same search criteria as mentioned earlier AND use
"selectivity" as a measure of the quality of the school (using "most
selective" as our criterion), then your search narrows down to the
following 10 instutions :

Boston College MA 
Bucknell University PA 
University of California--Davis CA 
University of California--Irvine CA 
University of California--Santa Barbara CA 
University of North Carolina--Chapel Hill NC 
University of Notre Dame IN
University of Richmond VA  
University of Southern California CA
Vanderbilt University TN 

Google Search Terms :
campus or college or university fine arts program ranking or rankings

Hope this helps, and all the best in choosing the school of your
