Tax Breaks

If your student is under the age of 13, you may be eligible to count a ProjectFUN Summer Workshop as an expense toward the Child and Dependent Care Credit. Visit the IRS website for more information. DigiPen Institute of Technology's tax ID number is 91-1946296.

Scholarships

Each year, DigiPen Institute of Technology offers a limited number of need-based scholarships to students who may not otherwise be able to attend an on-site or online ProjectFUN workshop. See below for more information!

Scholarships, either full or partial, are awarded to workshop attendees based on their financial need.  In order to offer as many opportunities to students as possible, each student may only be considered for one workshop scholarship per season.

Eligibility for need-based scholarships is based on the following guidelines, including household size (all adults and children living in a single household) and income standards. However, falling within these guidelines does not guarantee a scholarship. 

Also, if a scholarship applicant does not fall within these guidelines but can prove an additional financial hardship or special circumstances, the scholarship committee will take this into consideration and may grant a scholarship.

Total Household Size Maximum Yearly Income
2 $34,000
3 $42,000
4 $50,000
5 $58,000
6 $66,000
7 $67,000
8 $69,000
9 $70,000
10 $72,000
