About Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships

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.

Scholarship recipients are selected not only for their ability and their need, but also for their demonstrated commitment to giving back to the larger community through their work.

 The 2015–2016 Worldstudio AIGA Scholarship jurors met in June 2015 and reviewed applications from students attending art and design programs at colleges and universities across the country. Twenty-one scholarships were granted to an outstanding group of applicants through the generous support of our sponsors.
