A key factor in college choice is finances. At RISD, we want to make our program accessible to families from as many walks of life as possible, so we offer scholarships and financial aid based on need. Our scholarship offerings include RISD scholarships on the undergraduate level, and department fellowships on the graduate level. We also offer students the opportunity to earn extra money through work study and teaching assistantships.
Scholarship and fellowship amounts vary depending on need and availability, but the the first step towards being considered is applying. Fill out the FAFSA and CSS profile (if applicable) by the following deadlines:
Early Decision Freshmen: CSS Profile by November 15, FAFSA after January 1 but before February 15.
Regular Decision Freshmen: FAFSA and CSS Profile by February 15
Transfers: FAFSA and CSS Profile by March 15.
Graduate Students: FAFSA by February 15
