Rising Star students may be offered a scholarship from SCAD based on demonstrated academic and/or co-curricular achievement, including leadership, volunteer and community service, involvement, and artistic accomplishment. All students applying to the program before May 15, 2016, will be considered for academic scholarships based on their official high school transcript. To be considered for an achievement based scholarship, applicants must submit a 10-piece portfolio and a list of achievements. These awards are available to both U.S. and international students. The review committee considers applicants for scholarships on a case-by-case basis. Applicants will be contacted by the review committee if supplemental materials are needed.
Applicants are encouraged to apply early, as scholarships are limited, very competitive and typically awarded to the earliest qualifiers.
Eligible students may submit work to be considered for the SCAD Challenge competition series for possible program tuition scholarships.
