MIAD Pre-College Scholarship Portfolio Classes

Registration now open for Spring Scholarship Portfolio!

Scholarship Portfolio in the spring semester is an opportunity for high school seniors to continue to develop a “living” portfolio representative of individual growth, and to further develop skills across fine art and design disciplines in preparation for the college experience. 

Students complete 5 projects during the 11 week course, strategically developed to provide ample opportunity for experimentation, discovery and diversifying and adding to existing skills. Multiple prompts are provided for each project to allow students to make work relevant to their own technical and conceptual interests regardless of discipline or media preferences. Group critiques, presentations and individual feedback augment student growth, with support and access to the Admissions team to further prepare for the transition to college.

High school seniors who successfully complete the course receive a $2,500 scholarship, renewable up to four years (totaling $10,000), to attend MIAD in the fall following their high school graduation. This is in addition to any other merit or need-based monies awarded. Attendance is required each week, along with project completion, in order to receive the scholarship offer.

Please note: Scholarships are not available to attend this class. Students must be entering or in grade 12 to register.

“My feelings of being trapped in an endless art funk came to an end when I started the MIAD Scholarship Portfolio online class. The class challenged me to use mediums that I am not used to using, which ultimately reminded me that there are no limitations when it comes to art. It broke the wall I built that separated me from an infinite number of possibilities.”
– Hannah, Illinois, Fall 2020 Scholarship Portfolio Participant
