You see things a little differently. You live to solve problems, to find a new and better way, to create. At The Art Institutes system of schools, we do too. We prepare creative students for hands-on careers in the fields of Design, Media Arts, Fashion, and Culinary. At our school, you’ll become part of an inspiring community and receive the guidance, support, and instruction you need to prepare to do what you love, for life.

The Art Institutes schools are partnering with DECA to provide scholarship opportunities to graduating high school seniors. DECA members graduating in 2017 are eligible to receive a $1,000 scholarship to attend The Art Institutes school of their choice. Additional scholarships will be available for DECA students who are first-place winners at the upcoming DECA Association Level (up to up to $1,500) and/or DECA International Career Development Conference (ICDC, up to $5,000 in addition to the DECA Association Scholarship and member amount) competitions.
