Competitive Scholarships

Scholarships for Transfer Students

MICA offers Transfer Scholarships and need-based grants to qualified students transferring from other post-secondary institutions.

Scholarship recipients are selected by review of application, transcripts, and portfolio; award amounts are based on a combination of meritorious achievement and financial need. These scholarships and grants are funded by MICA and are renewable annually until completion of the BFA degree, provided recipients maintain full-time enrollment status, good academic standing, and the high standards of personal conduct expected of all MICA students.
