Students should apply for college-wide, School of Design, School of Architecture and Interior Design, and School of Planning scholarships online. In addition to the submitting the online application to be considered for college-wide awards, School of Art students should also apply for School of Art scholarships through the school office. The application deadline is March 15 unless otherwise noted on application materials. To be considered for scholarships based on financial need, be sure to submit FAFSA information to UC.
Thanks to the generosity of numerous alumni and friends of the college, both college-wide and discipline-specific scholarships are available to students in the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning.
These scholarships are available primarily for students who are continuing in our programs at the present time, sophomore level and above. This scholarship information relates to funds that will be awarded the following year.
To be considered for scholarships, applicants must complete the online application. Students are required to submit a resume, write a personal statement, and must enter faculty members' names on their application in order to allow faculty members to have access to their recommendation forms; this is also an online process.
Scholarships are "free money" generally awarded on the basis of talent or merit and are not paid back. Additionally, any scholarship that you receive may reduce or replace the self-help (loan or work-study) portion of your aid package. You must notify the Student Financial Aid Office
of any scholarships you receive from an outside source that are not already listed on your financial aid award offer.
