The 2013–2014 Worldstudio AIGA Scholarship jurors met in May 2013 and reviewed more than 300 applications from students attending art and design programs at colleges and universities across the country. Sixteen scholarships and two honorable mentions were granted to an outstanding group of applicants in five categories, through the generous support of sponsors including the AIGA DC Continuum Fund Scholarship, AIGA-Tomoko Miho Fund Scholarship, Coyne Family Foundation, the Young Photographer’s Alliance and an anonymous donor.
Help us award even more scholarships next year! Every dollar you give will make a difference in a student’s life and will champion a more diverse art and design industry. Donate online by August 6.
