Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships
About the Worldstudio AIGA scholarship
Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships benefit minority and economically disadvantaged students who are studying art and design disciplines in colleges and universities in the United States. Our primary aims are to increase diversity in the creative professions, and to foster social and environmental responsibility in the artists, designers, and studios of tomorrow.
Scholarship recipients are selected not only for their talent and their need, but also for their demonstrated commitment to giving back to the larger community through their work. Each award is paid directly to the recipient’s school and applied toward tuition.
Since its inception in 1995, Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships has awarded over one million dollars to over 650 minority and economically disadvantaged college students of art and design.
