RISD Scholarship

Scholarship Description
RISD offers several scholarships each year to freshmen who exhibit outstanding academic and artistic achievements but do not necessarily demonstrate need. One award of at least $5,000 is made to a participant in the Arts Recognition and Talent Search (ARTS), and another of at least $5,000 is made to a participant in Scholastics. In addition, up to five Trustee Scholarships of at least $4,000 are awarded each year. Trustee Scholarships may be renewed annually, provided you remain in good standing. Although you must enter the ARTS or Scholastics competitions to be eligible for either, no special application is required for Trustee Scholarships. More than one-third of the student body who demonstrate artistic and academic excellence and financial need receives RISD scholarships ranging from $500 to $27,500 a year.
