By creating a scholarship or contributing to an established scholarship fund, you can...
Keep a student in school: Many students are walking a financial tightrope that can unravel at any moment due to a parent's job loss, medical condition, or other unexpected situation. A scholarship can extend a much needed safety net.
Pass the baton: You were a student, and someone reached out with a scholarship. You remember what pride the gift offered and want your turn to support a hard-working student.
Support shared backgrounds: You want to help an outstanding student in your field or one who has a similar talent. A donor who creates a named annual or named endowed scholarship can shape the scholarship's criteria to assist a student who might be much like them.
Commemorate a loved one: A donor can honor a friend or family member by naming an annual or endowed scholarship after a loved one. Naming a scholarship in someone's honor is an graceful way to benefit a student and pay tribute to someone important in a donor's life.
Celebrate art and design: You attended MICA, or you know someone who did. Maybe you just appreciate the importance of art and design in shaping our society and culture. You want to continue the legacy by helping a MICA student receive the best art and design education in the country.
