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. Each year the program receives hundreds of applications from aspiring designers and artists eager to influence the world with their amazing talents, but without the financial means to do so.
With the support of generous individuals, organizations and corporations, more than $930,000 in scholarships has been awarded to deserving students since 1995. Help us meet the $1,000,000 mark in 2013!
already raised $30,000 toward our goal of $70,000 this year, and you can help by donating online. Every dollar you give will make a difference in a
student’s life and will champion a more diverse art and design industry.
The most impactful contribution is a gift of $2,500 for a one-year scholarship in your name. In return for your contribution at this level, you or your company will be acknowledged on the Worldstudio
website, on AIGA.org and in the scholarship announcement and press
release this year. In addition, you’ll receive a biography of the
student with images of their work, and a set of 25 limited-edition
postcards featuring winners’ artwork.
At levels of $25,000 or higher, programs can be
custom-tailored to suit your goals and budget. If you would like to sponsor a scholarship in the name of an individual or organization, contact Mark Randall of Worldstudio Foundation by email or by phone at 212 366 1317.
