How to Apply for Graphic Design Scholarships Graphic design scholarships aim to offset the cost of a college degree. If you are studying fine art, motion graphics, web, print or graphic design, you may be eligible to apply. Apart from money, a graphic design scholarship may offer other perks. Like the opportunity to intern or free design software. To apply for a graphic design scholarship, you often need to submit a portfolio of your artwork. And sometimes the selection committee will keep it. A way to get around this is to create a CD or thumb drive with digital samples. That way you are able to apply for a few scholarships and keep your original pieces. There may be other criteria to meet too. Proof of financial need, letters of reference and a specific GPA range are a few. You may also need to write an artist’s statement which speaks to your goals and what art means to you. Why Apply for Graphic Design Scholarships? One needs a bachelor’s degree to enter the graphic design workforce. Graphic designers use a wide range of skills, including printing, technical illustration, and computer graphics. On average, a graphic designer earns an annual salary of $50,370. And many land jobs in publishing, branding, advertising, PR and in niche design services. At last check, the average cost of a graphic design degree at a public college was about $6,533. It’s even more expensive if you earn your degree at a private school as the average cost is $29,880. Since a scholarship is a grant of money, you do not need to repay it if you abide by the terms. So, securing a scholarship may help you prep for a career without incurring (as much) student debt.
