Graphic art scholarships can be hard to find because most are awarded to businesses or organisations. However, there are several scholarships that are available to a graphic artist or a student of graphic art, graphic communication, graphic printing and graphic design. Some scholarships are regionally specific, or from private foundations, and some are distributed through a university or college. Most graphic art scholarships have specific qualifications, and they vary in award amounts.
