Scholarships are sums of money that students do not have to pay back. Scholarships are different than grants as they are awarded more for academic merit, or in recognition of your ability or talent as determined by the sponsor of the scholarship.
Art scholarships help aspiring artists, designers, and photographers pay for their art school education. Some scholarships will require the artist to submit pieces of their artwork, or samples from their portfolio.
