Create Change: Your Support

Now more than ever, the world needs transdisciplinary collaborators, global citizens, and creative practitioners who can make a difference.

The Stamps School of Art & Design’s multi-faceted, research-based approach is responsive to this need, giving the culture-makers of tomorrow the skills they need to address the unique challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

Stamps scholarship recipients speak about their passion for art and the power of faculty mentorship.

The Stamps School of Art & Design prepares students to think in new ways, to educate them to become concerned world citizens, and to equip them with the skills for life-long accomplishment.

Join us in our commitment to the culture-makers of tomorrow by supporting the areas of greatest impact, including:

Emergency Support

Helping art & design students when they need it most, the Stamps Student Emergency Fund supports them when they encounter emergencies or one-time unforeseen expenses. From medical and dental bills to food, housing, and emergency travel costs, this fund makes it possible for Stamps students to navigate tough times without disrupting their education. 

Scholarships and Financial Aid

Contributions provide need-based scholarships, merit scholarships, international experience travel funding, internship support, and resources to ensure that our students can focus on their work without worry about the inability to afford tuition, materials, or equipment.
