Give to MICA

Donor Recognition

The MICA experience would not be the same without the generosity of alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends. The impact of your gifts cannot be overstated.

Highlight on new Endowed Scholarships

The Joyce Harriet Weisman Margolis Scholarship Endowment was established by Frank Margolis PhD in memory of his wife, Joyce, to provide tuition support for qualified students from all backgrounds to have the opportunity to receive their education from MICA regardless of their financial constraints.


"I created this award to recognize my late wife, and life partner for over 60 years, Joyce Margolis, a multitalented artist and biologist, who expressed her creativity in a wide range of media, and I trust that MICA students will gain inspiration from her legacy."- Frank Margolis Phd


The Joseph J. Costa, MD and Janet F. Scholes Memorial Scholarship Endowment was established by David Hart, husband of Joe and son of Janet, to   honor their legacy.  The scholarship will create a tremendous opportunity for   talented and deserving students from Maryland with financial need to enroll, attend   and thrive at MICA. 

David and Joe were married for over 27 years when Joe, a highly-recognized doctor at Mercy died of complications from COVID-19.


Why I Give

Matthew Smith '12, BFA Animation and Assistant Director of Admission

"Scholarship is a tantamount to the success of our students. The choice to attend a college comes down to many different factors, but when financial support is there to assist a very talented young adult, the care and community of MICA comes through and helps make their collegiate decision that much easier."

Smile Indias '17, MA Social Design

"Without the scholarship and great emotional support I got from MICA, I would not have had the courage to show up in spaces where I am least expected."
