You can have a profound and long-lasting impact on the creative life of a young artist, designer, or scholar while also investing in our collective cultural future by supporting scholarships at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). Scholarships create a meaningful connection between students, the people who have invested in them, and the next generation of innovative thinkers and makers. These opportunities advance our students’ education, give them an advantage in their future career, and encourage them to give back to the community that made their education possible.
