AIGA Worldstudio scholarships benefit minority and economically disadvantaged students who are studying photography, illustration, and design disciplines in colleges and universities in the United States. Moreover, scholarships are awarded to encourage social and environmental responsibility and cultural awareness in the next generation of artists and designers.
Furthermore, their primary aims are to increase diversity in the creative professions, and to foster social as well as 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. In addition, each award is paid directly to the recipient’s school and applied toward tuition.
