Scholarship Intent: Provides scholarships to minority and economically disadvantaged students who are studying design and arts disciplines in colleges and universities in the United States.
1) Applicants must be matriculated (or planning to matriculate) at accredited colleges and universities in the United States for the Fall 2021/Spring 2022 academic year with the intention of maintaining full-time status for the entire year. If you do not yet know which school you will attend, put your first choice.
2) Though not a requirement, diversity is a significant factor considered in jury decisions. AIGA considers race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability and disability, age, and other factors that shape creative perspective and professional experience when reviewing applications.
3) Scholarships are only awarded to those students who are in financial need. Applicants must, therefore, provide complete Financial Aid information on the scholarship form and have the form signed by his/her Financial Aid Officer.
