Scholarships

The Continuing Education department offers a limited number of partial scholarships ranging from $250-$1,000 as well as some scholarships designated specifically for the 3D and Craft courses. To apply for a scholarship you must submit a 2017 income tax return of the parent(s) or guardian(s) who claim(s) you as a dependent as well as the parent’s (or guardian’s) spouse’s tax return (if applicable). Scholarships are independent of the FAFSA application and process, and are based on merit and financial need demonstrated by the family’s 2017 tax return.

Graffiti HeArt will be working with CIA to provide Pre-College scholarships, which will be awarded based on a review of portfolios and a determination of both merit and need. With the mission, “To Inspire Health and Art in the Community,” the local nonprofit focuses on promoting graffiti art and artists through community revitalization projects, funding art education and scholarships for underserved youth in our communities. More information on Graffiti HeArt can be found at graffitiheart.org.

To apply for scholarships, students should include the following with their application:

  • Personal statement (500 words max)
  • A copy of your family's 2017 tax return

For questions regarding scholarships, contact precollege@cia.edu.
