Do you want a scholarship?

The Art Institutes schools and EDMC are now offering "The Education Foundation" scholarship.

Please visit me for an application. There is a very good chance that if you submit an application you will earn a scholarship.  It's an easy 1-page application plus an essay. If you spend two hours on it and you end up winning $500 you've just earned $250/hour! You can't beat that. Some past winners have won a lot more than $500....

there are also many other scholarship resources listed on our Library's webpage. http://aii.campusguides.com/aicasd-scholarships
I encourage all of you to spend a few hours applying to scholarships.

The SD Foundation is a completely local source.
