What does winning a Merit Scholarship mean for your education?

Winning a Merit Scholarship gives me a push to do more, to work even harder. The financial help allows me to focus on my work more rather than worrying about money. 

Why did you decide to come to MCAD?

I decided to come to MCAD after a recruiter came to my high school, I was totally sold. I wanted to be in a city close to home but not too close, the work that I saw coming out of MCAD amazed me and made me want to work towards something similar, and the fact that the school is open 24/7 to students really appealed to me.
