Each semester Design Institute of San Diego will award up to two Director's Grants of $1,500 for a full-time student or $1,000 for a part-time or evening student. Once awarded, grants will be automatically renewed so long as recipients remain enrolled in 12 units or more per semester if a full-time student, or 9 units or more per semester if a part-time or evening student. A cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher must also be maintained in order for the grant to be renewed.Grant guidelines: Grant application materials must be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org and received no later than July 15th (for fall semester start), November 15th (for spring semester start), or April 15th (for summer semester start). Up to two DISD sponsored grants per semester may be awarded, one grant for each category. Grant recipients must be studying on a full-time basis: 12 units or more per semester if a fulltime student, or 9 units or more per semester if a part-time or evening student. Each grant recipient will receive the same grant amount. Once awarded, grant recipients must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher during their studies at Design Institute. If an awarded student withdraws during the semester, the grant will be included in "other sources of aid" in the refund calculation. Should an awarded student drop below the eligibility guidelines regarding cumulative GPA or course load requirements, grant eligibility will discontinue for future semesters. All grant applicants and their materials will be reviewed by a committee using a numeric scoring evaluation form. Completeness of the grant requirements, GPA, scholarship essay, and application materials will be considered.
