Support MCAD Students


Gifts of every size contribute to the success of Minneapolis College of Art and Design students!


In addition to scholarship support, you can donate to two new initiatives, Art Cellar and Service Bureau awards, that also directly support student success.

  • Scholarship Support
    With more than 95% of students receiving financial aid in the form of grants or scholarships, MCAD is continually working to stay affordable to any student who is talented and driven enough to succeed as an artist or designer. Gifts of any size in support of student scholarships make a lasting impact to MCAD students.
  • Art Cellar Awards
    Every student makes their way through the Art Cellar—a convenient place to shop for art supplies and textbooks at discounted prices. However, even with low prices, the ongoing costs of supplies for projects and assignments add additional strain to many students’ already limited resources. Donor-funded awards of $100 will be awarded each semester to first and second-year students of demonstrated financial need.
  • Service Bureau Awards
    The MCAD Service Bureau is a full-service print shop located on campus where students have access to high-quality color inkjet prints, scanning, bookbinding and more. Each semester, donor-funded credits of $250 are awarded to juniors and seniors to use at the Service Bureau as they complete their final projects.

Your gift of any size will contribute to the success of MCAD students. Select your designation below: Scholarships, Art Cellar Award, or Service Bureau Award; and donor gifts will be distributed to MCAD students, ensuring their path to becoming the next generation of leading artists and designers.
