July 28, 2017

The Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) MFA in Graphic Design program has announced new scholarship funding available for all incoming students in the fall 2017 class.

Each student who is accepted and enrolls in the MFA in Graphic Design program for October 2017 will receive a $2,000 incoming semester scholarship, with potential options for additional merit-and need-based funding. The application deadline is Aug. 28, 2017.

“For anyone interested in applying to our MFA in Graphic Design program, this scholarship funding will be a great opportunity. The work from our program’s students and alumni has been extraordinary. In fact, two of our current students recently won 2017 Student Design Awards from Graphic Design USA magazine, which has also listed VCFA as one of the top design schools in the country,” says Matthew Monk, academic dean and MFA in Graphic Design faculty member at VCFA.

The MFA in Graphic Design program is also pleased to announce that student Shruthi Manjula Balakrishna was awarded the $2,000 scholarship for American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) members. Balakrishna will receive the scholarship award for fall 2017.


VCFA’s MFA in Graphic Design is one of the nation’s first low-residency programs in graphic design that is built around a student’s individual interests and goals. It is an immersive two-year or three-year graduate program that synthesizes five intense, one-week residencies alongside four six-month semesters of independent study with a range of faculty mentors.
