With technology growing in leaps and bounds, it doesn’t come as a surprise that a number of students today are pursuing a major in graphic design.

The work of a graphic designer is all around us, making the world more vibrant and joyful. They create illustrations, drawings, logos, color schemes, and layouts of magazine and web pages. They are the ones who choose text sizes and fonts, and often make all the visual elements of a project fit together in a way that is pleasing to the eye. Almost no product or service exists without the need for graphic design of some kind for marketing or brand identity purposes.

There are plenty of opportunities a graphic designer can get, whether it is in advertising firms, public relations firms, website design companies, and magazines and other publications. In some businesses, designers may be involved in the process of creating packages for various products or even for designing video games.

AIS Technolabs has come up with Graphic Design Scholarships for all budding designers. The intention is to give the designers an opportunity to hone their designing skills and get suitably placed in various industries thereafter.

Desired skills of a designer

Artistic Ability

The foremost skill that the graphic designer should have is his artistic ability. The designer begins many projects with free-hand sketches. Some computer programs may also require him to draw on the screen. Though computer software and applications aid the work of the designer, the person must be an artist at heart.

Graphic Design Software

Knowledge of Graphic design software is as important in this field as an individual’s artistic ability. It’s desirable for students to have knowledge about the following :

  • Adobe Photoshop — alter or edit existing images and the creation of complex images
  • Adobe InDesign — page design and layouts
  • CorelDRAW Graphic Suite X7 — illustration, tracing, photo editing
  • Adobe Dreamweaver — web page design

IQphoto.com is an award-winning San Francisco wedding photography company, focusing on SF City Hall weddings.

IQphoto knows just how important a quality education can be in getting a foot up in the industry. Additionally, they recognize every dollar counts toward achieving the ultimate goal…a degree. With that in mind, IQphoto is proud to offer a $500 scholarship program to students attending a US accredited college or university.

The $500 scholarship is being offered for the college or university student who can demonstrate a flair for writing.

Most employment opportunities require a variety of writing types, even those not specifically designated as communications positions. Excellent writing skills present a professional, polished appearance, granting job seekers and employees an edge over the competition.

Students shouldn’t assume that just because they’re going into a field not designated as communication, the writing is not important. On the contrary, with the abundance of emails, notes, letters, texts, tweets and Facebook status updates in the workplace today, an increasing amount of time in any profession is spent writing.

Whether you’re responding to an email, drafting a plan of action to a boss or writing a status update for the company’s Facebook page, writing skills can boost you and your company’s image, making a huge difference in how you appear to others.

With this in mind, applicants for this scholarship should submit a 1,000-word essay on the importance of quality writing using personal anecdotes or a story. Many times a message may not come across the way it was supposed to due to grammar errors, or a project may have been submitted without the proper proofreading. What was the outcome? What did you learn? Or, what did the mistake make you think or feel about the person who did it?

 

REQUIREMENTS TO APPLY

  • You must have been accepted into an accredited college or university. Technical colleges are acceptable as well.
  • Currently displaying a 3.0 GPA. If you’re a GAP student applying to college after a year off, your last GPA in school must have been at least a 3.0.
  • Must possess a high school diploma or GED
  • Any class student may apply: Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors. Additionally, those seeking a scholarship for their Master’s degree may apply as well.

APPLICATION PROCESS

  • Submit an essay not to exceed 1000 words to scholarships@iqphoto.com in either .doc or .pdf format
  • We encourage creativity, with a liberal use of language, however, the essay should contain no vulgarity or profanity.
  • Your essay should showcase your use of the English language, excellent grammar and a thorough understanding of the topic.
  • Once submitted, the entries cannot be returned or edited.

SELECTION PROCESS

  • All entries must be received by midnight ET December 31, 2019
  • The winner will be announced no later than January 31, 2020
  • The winner will need to provide proof of acceptance into the school of choice and proof of high school diploma.
  • Winners will be notified by email. If the winner does not reply within 14 days, a new winner will be selected.
  • Any questions should be submitted to scholarships@iqphoto.com

Need Based Grant

Saint Augustine’s University funds a number of grant awards for students who meet specific criteria for financial need. To consideration, students must file both the Saint Augustine’s University Financial Aid Application and FAFSA for determination of financial eligibility.  Students must receive all of their financial aid awards before receiving consideration for a need-based grant.

The need-based grants vary in amounts, depending on student’s calculated financial eligibility and the availability of funds. Unfortunately, funds are not sufficient to help every student who qualifies for need-based assistance. Priority is given to applicants with the strongest academic records (at least a cumulative 2.0 cumulative grade point average and have earned at least 30 credit hours during the prior academic year).

Saint Augustine’s University Institutional Scholarship Awards and Grants require students to timely and properly complete the SAU Financial Aid Application, FAFSA and parents to complete the Parent Plus Loan application.  All students must accept all financial aid offered to them and parents must accept the Parent Plus Loan if it is offered before institutional awards will be given (with the exception of Presidential Scholars).  All new students seeking institutional scholarship awards and grants must apply for five external (online) scholarships and provide proof of same to the Office of Scholarships.

For purpose of clarity, scholarship awards and tuition grants at Saint Augustine’s University are discounts on the direct costs of attending the University.  Direct costs are tuition, mandatory fees, room and board, and technology fees.  All students are responsible for sales taxes on the meal plan, health insurance, income taxes, and books.  Saint Augustine’s University offers a limited number of scholarship awards and tuition grants to students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement. In addition, the University provides scholarship awards and tuition grants based on athletic ability, leadership potential, and special talents. Admission scholarships are available for freshmen with high SAT and/or ACT scores and academic abilities.  All scholarship awards and grants are available for four years or eight active semesters only, awarded on a first come, first served basis, and are contingent upon the final Saint Augustine’s University budget.

The University provides a number of competitive scholarship awards and grants that are awarded to students from private donors and public agencies. The recipients of these scholarship awards and grants are selected on a competitive basis.  Funding for all institutional scholarship awards and grants is subject to change as determined by the Scholarship Committee.

Students must maintain the required cumulative GPA, while earning a minimum of thirty credit hours per academic year, relative to each scholarship award and tuition grant in order to remain in good standing with the scholarship committee and receive the scholarship award or tuition grant credit towards the direct cost of attending Saint Augustine’s University.  All current students seeking institutional scholarships must apply for external (online) scholarships each semester and supply documentation of applications to the Scholarship Program Office thirty days prior to the end of each semester regardless of scholarship status. Should a student’s cumulative GPA fall below the minimum required GPA for any institutional scholarship award or tuition grant and/or not earn thirty credits within an academic year, that student shall receive a warning letter at the end of each semester from the Office of Scholarships and must meet with his or her Financial Aid Counselor. If a student’s cumulative GPA and/or earned credit hours are below the required minimum at the end of the following semester, the student shall receive a letter of suspension of the scholarship award or tuition grant.
