MCAD Scholarship Fund

Scholarships open doors for young people and help them launch their careers in the creative economy. Proceeds from The Auction support the MCAD Scholarship Fund. Over 95% of MCAD students receive some sort of financial aid; it is the difference between realized ambition and deferred dreams. This year, MCAD awarded nearly half a million dollars in scholarships to aspiring artists and designers. The MCAD Scholarship Fund allows the community to actively support creativity and innovation.
