AIGA Worldstudio Scholarships benefit underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students who are studying photography, illustration, and design disciplines in colleges and universities in the United States. Scholarships are awarded annually to encourage social and environmental responsibility and cultural awareness in the next generation of artists and designers.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in one of the following disciplines: graphic design, illustration, interactive design, or photography, and be enrolled at an accredited college or university in the United States for the upcoming school year as a full-time student. In making selections, jurors consider and prioritize quality of submitted work, financial need, underrepresented and BIPOC students, academic record, recommendations, and strength of written purpose statements.
