CalArts Scholarships

Scholarship Description
Awarded on an annual basis by the Financial Aid Committee upon the recommendation of the appropriate School Dean, mentor and faculty. Priority is given to those accepted applicants and continuing students who meet the financial aid priority deadline and have calculated financial need. The dollar amount of your award may vary based on your merit placement and your computed need, and in no case may exceed the cost of tuition. All scholarships are tuition– only awards, credited to your account at the rate of one–half of the award each semester. Many of these CalArts Scholarships are donated by specific individuals, organizations or foundations and will carry the donors name. If you are a recipient of one of these donor awards you are required to report annually in writing (prior to registration Semester II) on your academic/artistic progress and write a thank-you letter. Since all CalArts Scholarships are awarded for one year at a time, you must reapply each year by submitting the FAFSA and all other requested documents by the established priority financial aid deadline and demonstrate need.
