Parents: Financial Services
Because of our world-renowned faculty and the uniquely interdisciplinary education students receive at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), they will enter the world intellectually nimble, able to understand and navigate society from multiple perspectives and capable of coming up with innovative solutions to solve complex problems. Their work will be original, thought provoking, and relevant, and they will have developed important peer and mentor relationships that will continue to be a resource throughout their lifetime. In short, they will be prepared to seamlessly adjust to the demands of the world. This is something that can’t be quantified. But the investment you both make and the effort they put forward will allow them to define their future.
Attending SAIC is an investment in your child's future, and you are not alone in that investment. SAIC invests in your child too by making several merit-based scholarships and need-based grants available, including our Trustee Scholarships, Presidential Scholarships, Recognition Scholarships, Incentive Scholarships, and Chicago Enrichment Scholarships, Federal Pell Grants, academic competitiveness grants, work study, and more.
The Family Guide to SAIC Student Financial Services [PDF] will provide you with a quick overview of available services.
