The SCAD Challenge Fashion Design Competition offers students the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity and add a striking new piece to their professional design portfolios as they compete for funding to attend SCAD. High school juniors and seniors are invited to submit an original garment created from non-traditional materials. Fabric cannot be visible in the garment, although entrants are permitted to use it as a base for holding the garment together. Three winners from each SCAD Challenge category will receive a scholarship upon admission to the university. Scholarships are renewable each year until completion of a bachelor's degree as long as the recipient maintains a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0.
