Scholarships & Financial Aid
We wholeheartedly believe that art education ought to be accessible to all with the passion to pursue it. Art is as necessary to the soul as oxygen is to the lungs, and the world needs artists like you who are willing to challenge preconceptions, startle the senses, and be the black sheep in a sea of fluffy white. Yet, higher education requires careful financial planning.
As a student or prospective student, you can receive financial guidance from the University of Arizona’s Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, as well as the School of Art’s own financial aid. We provide waivers, scholarships, and other types of financial aid so you can focus more on your artwork and less on dollar signs. Please submit your FAFSA each year for consideration and apply through our online portal: Scholarship Universe.Learn More
