Your generosity will allow us to select the most qualified students for scholarship awards from among the many applications received.
The exact number of awards is based on the amount of funds raised in a given year. All funds go directly to the students’ tuition and related expenses for the school year.
Awards are also considered for the second, third and fourth year of prior award recipients, with continued academic accomplishment and graphics career commitment serving as the evaluation criteria; as well as for first time second and third year college, or graduate student applicants. The Awards may be allocated to one or more students, based on the qualification levels of the responding candidates.
Multiple student sponsorships are welcomed.
Please help us achieve our goal to have a monthly subscriber for each and every one the students we support.
