At VCAD, we believe our students should follow their passion without worrying about financial status

Vancouver College of Art and Design (VCAD) is inviting 2010 high school graduates to a day of hands-on art and design coaching on Saturday, April 10 2010. Art X is a one-day workshop where high school students have the chance to complete their scholarship entry with the guidance of VCAD’s industry-leading instructors. $150,000 in scholarships will be awarded on May 21, 2010.

One full scholarship, up to four half scholarships and 50 partial scholarships will be given to the most qualified applicants. Students can complete the required scholarship application projects on their own or at Art X, but VCAD encourages students to attend the workshop to get one-on-one instruction and use VCAD’s industry-leading tools and facilities. By the end of the day, students will have made industry connections, met new creative friends, and completed the work samples they need to apply for the scholarships.

"At VCAD, we believe our students should follow their passion without worrying about financial status," says Bohdan Bilan, VP Academics at VCAD. "With the VCAD High School Scholarship program, we can help them get there."

VCAD offers art and design programs in Fashion Design, Interior Design, 3D Modeling Animation, Graphic Design, Web Design, and Marketing and Merchandising for Fashion. Interested students are asked to submit a scholarship application package specific to the program they are applying for by April 30, 2010. Scholarship winners will be notified by May 21, 2010.
