A significant portion of financial assistance available to students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) is available because individuals and organizations believe in the value of an SAIC education and have created scholarships for students.  Gift aid (grants, scholarships and any other aid that does not have to be repaid) may not exceed tuition each semester.

These scholarships ensure that talented students can attend SAIC regardless of their economic background. A scholarship is an investment in the personal, creative, intellectual, and professional development of each recipient.

The educational opportunities made possible by these scholarships encourage each recipient to give back to their community and participate in an ongoing network of support for artists, designers, writers, and thinkers at SAIC. Click here to access SAIC's scholarship database.
