Financial Aid: Outside Scholarships
In addition to any federal, state, or internal scholarships from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), we suggest that students explore outside scholarships as an additional source of funding for their education well in advance of the term for which the funding is desired.
Student or Parent Affiliations
We recommend beginning the process as early as 10–12 months in advance of the term for which the funding is desired. Start by asking questions and researching organizations students and their parents belong to and professional, religious, and community affiliations they may have to inquire about scholarship availability.
Here are some websites that offer online scholarship searches based on profile information provided by the student:
- Sallie Mae
- Scholarship Search Page
List Compiled by SAIC Staff
This list of outside scholarships researched by SAIC staff members contains scholarships for which you may qualify. This information was gathered by conducting a scholarship search through one or more of the online scholarship searches, as well as information received at SAIC from organizations offering scholarships. It is not limited to organizations through which SAIC students have received funding.
