Awarded on an annual basis by the Financial Aid Committee upon the recommendation of the appropriate School Dean, mentor and faculty. Priority is given to those accepted applicants and continuing students who meet the financial aid priority deadline and have calculated financial need. The dollar amount of your award may vary based on your merit placement and your computed need, and in no case may exceed the cost of tuition. All scholarships are tuition– only awards, credited to your account at the rate of one–half of the award each semester. Many of these CalArts Scholarships are donated by specific individuals, organizations or foundations and will carry the donors name. If you are a recipient of one of these donor awards you are required to report annually in writing (prior to registration Semester II) on your academic/artistic progress and write a thank-you letter. Since all CalArts Scholarships are awarded for one year at a time, you must reapply each year by submitting the FAFSA and all other requested documents by the established priority financial aid deadline and demonstrate need.
We help students and colleges connect. In the past year, we've helped over 600 colleges make over two million connections with students! Cappex allows colleges to search anonymous student profiles to find the students they'd like to connect with. It makes the college admissions process easy by offering college search and lots of college resources, with detailed information on admissions, scholarships and financial aid.
Best of all, the students stay in control. Students review messages from colleges in their own "College Center" here on the site. The student chooses which colleges to share their contact information with, keeping their information hidden from the rest.
Cappex recently launched MeritAid.com, to help students learn about college options they might have otherwise assumed were out of their reach. Colleges are investing over $11 billion annually in merit aid and academic scholarships to attract and retain students, and we want to help them get the word out!
Shed some stress and gain some confidence. Cappex - College search made simple.
