We believe that creativity and diversity go hand in hand.
Funding and Scholarship Opportunities
We believe that creativity and diversity go hand in hand, so we choose our students based on talent, not on what money they have in the bank.
Unfortunately, being an independent portfolio school means our students are not eligible for Student Finance England and we are unable to offer student visas to international students, however, there are other options.
With the support of our sponsors and charity partners, we’re able to offer a limited number of scholarships at the school through our merit or means based scholarships.
Our means-based scholarships are awarded by our charity partners and are specifically designed to widen diversity in the creative sector, find out more about our charity partners here:
D&AD Scholarships are awarded to D&AD New Blood pencil winners, with up to 3 scholarships available each year.
To apply, simply email Marcia at email@example.com to let her know you’ve won a pencil and that you’d like to apply.
Our merit-based scholarships are awarded through the school and funded by our sponsors.
Merit based scholarships are won through SCA scholarship competitions set by our current intake every April and are announced at our end of year party in July. Keep an eye out for more information on our scholarship competitions on our social media from April onwards.
You can check out some of our previous scholarship competition winners here:
Other funding options
If you’re not fortunate enough to win a merit-based scholarship or receive one through our charity partners, we still have some funding options that we suggest applying to.
The lovely people at National Careers Service will try to help you apply for grants and charitable donations. You can call them on 0800 100 900. Let them know that SCA receives no government funding. This might make your application more attractive to some grant providers.
Funding for everyone
