Housing Scholarships


Your generosity can (doubly) change the life of a MIAD student living in the TWO50TWO residence hall while fostering the vitality of our neighborhood.

Each year:

  • 300+ students live in the TWO50TWO residence hall
  • 44% of first-time freshmen are first-generation college students
  • 36% of students identify as minorities

State and federal aid does not cover housing costs for students. Studies show that students who reside on campus have greater academic and interpersonal success. We are proud that our students live, create and work in our Third Ward neighborhood.

Please help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 for students living in TWO50TWO this year. Your donation of any amount will be doubled by a generous anonymous donor, which will allow us to award $50,000 of these need-based scholarships!

About Housing Scholarships

A generous donor is matching $25,000 for three years to help MIAD students live on campus in the TWO50TWO residence hall.

Through Housing Scholarships, students with high financial need have greater access to MIAD facilities, activities and support services, and have the opportunity to live and work in the heart of our shared creative community, where innovation thrives.

Housing Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, with preference given to first-generation and diverse students. Each scholarship is awarded annually through a student’s sophomore year.

Your support for Housing Scholarships can change a student’s life by making a college education accessible to students in need.

How can you help?

  • Contribute $15,000 per year for five years ($75,000 total).
  • Make a $10,000 gift to name a scholarship after your business or other name of your choosing.
  • Contribute an alternate amount.
