These scholarships are merit-based, taking into account a variety of criteria and in consultation with School Deans and faculty. The amount of scholarship awards varies; it is based on the availability of funding and it may not exceed the cost of tuition. All scholarships are tuition–only awards, credited to your CalArts student account in equal disbursements each semester.
Many of the CalArts Scholarships are donated by individuals, organizations or foundations and will carry the donor's name. If you are a recipient of one of these donor awards you will be notified by our Advancement Office and asked to report annually in writing on your academic/artistic progress and write a thank-you letter.
