Talk to your Admissions Counselor to learn more about these and other great scholarship and financial aid opportunities:
Based on your cumulative GPA. Award amounts up to $20,000 ($2,500 per term).
Based on a portfolio of your best artwork. Award amounts up to $20,000 ($2,500 per term).
These grants are for those students who have the drive and passion to be successful RMCAD students, but demonstrate substantial financial need. They are awarded at the sole discretion of the Director of Admissions.
Presidential + Provost Scholarships
These scholarships were created to recognize a student's potential to make significant contributions to the art and design world. The Portfolio Review Committee nominates select applicants who are then asked to submit an essay to complete eligibility. One Presidential and two Provost scholarship winners are selected each academic year. The Provost award amounts are up to $60,000 ($7,500 per term) and the Presidential award amount is up to $80,000 ($10,000 per term).
RMCAD awards generous scholarships at a variety of community events, including school district art shows, congressional district art shows, National Portfolio Days, and the Scholastic Art Awards of Colorado, with award amounts of up to $5,000 per term.
