Entering graduate

Through the office of admission, SCAD administers a number of scholarships, fellowships and grants for incoming graduate students. Recipients are expected to be particularly strong and positive leaders at SCAD, excelling academically and representing SCAD well within the community. These awards are available to both U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens and are offered to entering students prior to first-quarter attendance.

Incoming students may be offered an award from SCAD based on artistic achievement, academic achievement or both with consideration given to financial need as indicated by completion of the FAFSA or other documentation. Award recipients may accept additional scholarships from other sources, as well as additional forms of financial aid if qualified.

Awards are offered to degree-seeking students, are applied quarterly, and may be renewed annually until completion of a graduate degree at SCAD, as long as the recipient remains enrolled at SCAD and maintains a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.25.

An annual award is intended to be disbursed over 15 hours of credit earned in three quarters at SCAD. Graduate award recipients are not required to reside in SCAD housing.
