Stephens College Graphic Design Scholarship
Students interested in majoring in Graphic Design are invited to apply for a $20,000 Graphic Design scholarship at Stephens College. The scholarship is $5,000 per year, renewable for up to four years based on specific academic criteria.
To be considered, students must complete the online scholarship application form and upload files for each of the following:
1. We’d like to get to know you better. So, please, fill us in...
a. How would you best describe yourself?
b. How would your best friend describe you?
c. Why are you interested in pursuing a career in graphic design?
2. Resume (include extra-curricular activities, leadership positions and awards)
3. Now for the fun part...
a. First, imagine a NEW product, company or service aimed at your age group that does not currently exist. What do people your age need, want and use? Next, create the name, look, feel and identity of your new product, company or service. Now, execute or design your idea and include a two-page, double-spaced, typed paper describing your end product and how you plan to strategically introduce it to the target market.
You are welcome to submit your design materials (PDF format) with your written description. Please be sure to follow instructions on the website. Include the first initial of your first name and your last name in the file names of all submitted materials.
Students must apply and be accepted to Stephens College unconditionally to receive the scholarship. Submissions must be received by January 13th at 11:59 p.m. CST. The scholarship will be awarded to a recent high school graduate entering Stephens College in Fall. Students may not receive more than one program scholarship and are thus encouraged to submit for only one academic program scholarship competition.
The Graphic Design faculty will judge all entries and determine the recipient. The recipient will be awarded a $5,000 scholarship, renewable each academic year. Additional scholarships may be available based on entries received. The recipient and all applicants will be notified by January 27th.
The scholarship will be applied to the recipient’s account each year, one-half in the Fall Semester and one-half in the Spring Semester. To renew the scholarship, the student must maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average at Stephens and declare a major in Graphic Design.
