      c) must not list you as a referral themselves.

    3. You will receive the Refer-a-Friend Discount on your tuition for each friend who registers and pays in full for a Summer Workshop. These discounts will be applied to your tuition after you register for your workshop.

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. These 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. If a scholarship applicant does not fall within these guidelines, but can prove 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
