Annual Scholarships

"Being an artist is a difficult career path to take. That's why it's usually not a choice, it's just something people have to do – it's who they are. There's risk and financial hardships and no guarantees. I think scholarship support is essential because it really helps alleviate the stress and fear of debt so you can be in a free place to create."

—Peter Makela '18 (LeRoy E. Hoffberger School of Painting, MFA), Hoffberger Scholarship

There are many opportunities for creating a named scholarship at MICA.

Named annual scholarships can be created with a gift of $2,500 or more per year. A donor provides the funds through one or more donations each year. Many donors pledge to renew their gift annually for a term of years to ensure the scholarship's ongoing impact.

The donor and the College agree on an appropriate name and the general criteria for the scholarship. Some criteria the donor may want to consider include academic merit, financial need, or field of interest.

Scholarship donors receive thank you letters from their scholarship students and are given the opportunity to meet the student at an annual campus event.  Click here to see photos from our 2012 Scholarship Reception, Opening Doors.
