Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships allow U.S. college students from minority and
economically disadvantaged backgrounds not only to realize their
artistic dreams, but also to give back to their communities.
The application deadline for 2014–2015 scholarships has passed. Scholarship recipients will be notified in June 2014.
AIGA and Worldstudio announced in July 2013 that 18 talented and dedicated students were awarded Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships. Get to know the recipients through their work and personal essays.
