What are creative scholarships? Creative scholarships are merit based awards that tend to reward talents rather than grades. So, if you like to express your creativity, they can be a useful way to pay for college. Many creative scholarships are for fine arts students with gifts in the visual arts. Photography for example or design based arts like painting, graphic design or animation. But you do not have to be a visual arts student to apply for a creative scholarship. Your artistic interests may lie in music, creative writing, dance, theatre or film. And may be a hobby for you rather than your college major. Either way, applying for a creative scholarship may be quick and simple. In fact, all you might need to do is upload a portfolio, project, photo, short video or essay. Aspiring artists face the same financial burdens as any other college-bound student, but creative scholarships can help alleviate some of that burden, making a college education much more accessible.
