Scholarship recipients are selected by review of application, transcripts, and portfolio; award amounts are based on a combination of meritorious achievement and financial need. These scholarships are funded by MICA and are renewable each year until completion of the BFA degree, provided recipients maintain full-time enrollment status and an annual 3.0 GPA.
Competitive Scholarships Application Procedures For All Transfer Students
Step 1: Application for Admission and Competitive Scholarships
You must be accepted for admission to MICA in order to receive a scholarship award. On your application for admission, you should indicate that you intend to apply for merit-based scholarships and complete the Application for Competitive Scholarships, included on that form. Submit all required admission application materials by the application deadline. If you have not already done so, you must submit with your application:
- Your high school/secondary school transcripts or diploma indicating date of graduation (required to receive federal aid).
- Official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended
- Enrollment Status Report Form
- Course Descriptions
Step 2: Portfolio of Artwork
The portfolio of artwork you prepare for your admission application also serves as your portfolio for competitive scholarships for which you apply. Transfer applicants who intend to apply for competitive scholarships should submit their portfolio on CD/DVD or slides, as described under Step 7 in the Application Procedures for Transfer Applicants.
