At the Savannah College of Art and Design, we prepare outstanding students - like the ones in your classroom - for professional, successful, creative careers. Help them achieve a premier art and design education by nominating these shining students for the SCAD Distinguished Scholars Award.
This award is for US$20,000 per year and is applied to tuition at any SCAD location - Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia; Hong Kong; or online via eLearning. To be considered, students must be recommended by a teacher, professor or counselor. The SCAD Distinguished Scholars Award is renewable annually for students who maintain a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.0.
With more specialized degree programs than any other nonprofit art and design university, SCAD champions talented students who will go on to shape the future of creative professions. Life at SCAD is engaging within and beyond the classroom, with a university experience that includes programs and activities to promote student interaction, leadership and community service.
