Student Services: Scholarships

As an enrolled major in the College of Design, you have multiple opportunities to apply for scholarships that are either general (tuition, fees, supplies, housing) or travel (internships, research, professional conference, study abroad).

If you are admitted to a College of Design major and are actively taking classes, you may apply for scholarships as you learn of their availability from your department. All College of Design majors who are actively taking classes may also apply for scholarships that are open to all of our Design students. The Student Services office announces those applications during the first week of winter term.

The more than 110 scholarships in our college have been made possible by generous donations from private parties, both individuals and businesses. Many are provided by alumni who have been moved to give back and want to support current students as they earn their own degrees.

While each school may have select opportunities available during fall, winter, or spring terms—including for academically related travel or research—most scholarships are open for application during early winter term and are awarded for distribution during fall term of the following academic year. This timing allows returning students to include any awarded scholarship in their calculations for financial aid or loan packages for the following year.
