Worldstudio AIGA Scholarship ($2,000-$6,000 - Due April 1)

Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships benefit minority and economically disadvantaged students who are studying the design/arts disciplines in colleges and universities in the United States.
Among the Scholarships’ primary aims are:
• to increase diversity in the creative professions, and
• to foster social and environmental responsibility in the artists, designers, and studios of tomorrow.
To this end, scholarship recipients are selected not only for their ability and their need, but also for their demonstrated commitment to giving back to the larger community through their work.

Basic scholarships are awarded in the amount of $2,000-$3,000. Grand Prize awards are also given each year in amounts up to $6,000 at the jury’s discretion. These awards are paid directly to your school to be applied toward your tuition. In addition, Honorable Mention prizes in the amount of $200 cash are awarded.

• Applicants must be citizens of the United States or be in possession of a Green Card (formally known as a Permanent Resident Card or Form I-551)
• Applicants must be pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in one of the design/arts disciplines listed under “areas of study” - and plan to enter a career in the creative professions.
• Applicants must be matriculated (or planning to matriculate) at accredited colleges and universities in the United States for the Fall 2010/Spring 2011 academic year and intend on maintaining full-time status for the entire year.
• Incoming students who have yet to enroll must submit proof of acceptance from school of choice.
• Though not a requirement, minority status is a significant factor considered in jury decisions.
• Students must have at least a 2.0 GPA.
• 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.

The deadline for the 2011/12 awards is Friday, April 1, 2011.
