To apply, students are to submit a typed essay (up to 500 words) stating why you are entering the industry, what your goal is upon conclusion of the program and how you are going to impact the future of your craft.

In addition to internal payment plan options and Federal Financial Aid there are many scholarship opportunities available to our students.

The Institute may offer additional scholarship(s) or incentive(s) to incoming students who have been accepted into a specific program of study. Funds are awarded based upon criteria set by the Institute. When a scholarship or incentive is provided by the Institute, any eligible candidate meeting the set criteria may apply. Eligible candidates may apply to multiple scholarships, however, each candidate is eligible to receive a maximum of one scholarship or incentive funded by the Institute per enrolled program.

A variety of industry scholarships are also available to incoming and current students and can be combined with Institute funded scholarships or incentives. Eligibility for industry scholarships may vary and are subject to change. Interested students should contact our admissions team to receive a current list of industry scholarships.
