School of Architecture and Interior Design Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of numerous alumni and friends of the college, scholarships are available to students in the School of Architecture and Interior Design.

The application process varies by scholarship (all SAID applications need to be delivered in hardcopy format to Ellen Guerrettaz in the SAID office). Some require submission of a letter or a portfolio; others require from 1-3 faculty recommendations. For SAID scholarships, you may provide a "base packet" with information that applies to all scholarships for which you are applying.

Each scholarship requires a separate letter of intent that addresses your specific qualifications/eligibility and what the scholarship would mean to you. You will not be considered for any scholarship not represented by such a letter. Be sure you have included all materials required for each scholarship for which you apply, (materials required in addition to the "base" packet should be attached to the letter for the specific scholarship).

If you have not provided all required materials for a specific scholarship, you will be disqualified for consideration. The deadline for most DAAP scholarships is March 15.

For external scholarships, please provide the information requested in the format requested. Deadline dates are as posted. Please review thoroughly the information links below to learn the requirements of those scholarships which pertain to you.
