Your unique creative vision could earn you a scholarship to attend FIDM. Open to all High School Seniors, Graduates, and College Transfer Students, FIDM’s National Scholarship Competition seeks creative thinkers with the potential to be creative leaders.
Showcase your talent as you demonstrate a strong understanding of aesthetics and the ability to push your creative limits. These FIDM Scholarships are an investment in the future of our students, the next generation of solution-oriented creative leaders, entrepreneurs, and trendsetters.
There are seven (7) categories. To enter, you submit a project according to the guidelines set within each category:
A Winner and three top Finalists from each category are chosen based on creativity, thoughtfulness, presentation, and promise.* Winners for next year's competition will be notified in July 2015 and will also be featured in our Scholarship Winners' Gallery.

* All Entrants MUST be either a U.S. Citizen or have Permanent Resident status. The competition is not open to current or former FIDM Students. FIDM reserves the right not to award the scholarship in any of the categories if none of the submitted entries fulfill the criteria outlined in the Project Guidelines. Scholarships include tuition, fees, books, and most supplies. If the receipt of any federal or state grants for which the student is eligible creates an amount in excess of tuition and fees, students in two-year programs will have that sum applied to their second year tuition.
