Scholarships for Graphic Design Majors

Work in graphic design makes an exciting and fulfilling career, but the cost of education can be daunting for students entering the field. This is why there are a number of scholarships available to help future graphic designers cover their tuition costs. Many graphic design scholarships are offered by colleges and universities that offer the subject as a major. Others are awarded by industry organizations or local foundations. To qualify, you will need to be enrolled in an accredited institution and may need to submit a copy of your transcript, along with letters of recommendation and a personal statement. Some scholarships require applicants to meet a minimum GPA (often around 3.0), and some consider financial need. Find the perfect scholarship to meet your needs from the list below.
