These discounts will be applied to your tuition after you register for your workshop. Note that unlike other discounts, the Refer-A-Friend Discount can exceed the maximum discount for a single workshop. Feel free to use the form below to refer your friends now!

Refer a Friend

Receiving a discount on your Summer 2017 Workshop tuition is as simple as referring a friend! 

Fill out the form when you log into your account for a chance to receive a $50 discount on your summer workshop or $25 on your Homeschool, Weekend, or Afterschool course. Referred friends must be new to ProjectFUN and must register to receive the discount. You are welcome to give this discount to your referred friend as well!

*Please Note: Combination of discounts may exceed the 15% maximum discount for the Refer-a-friend discount ONLY. 

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.


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


For any questions about the application process, please contact the ProjectFUN Administration at To apply for a ProjectFUN scholarship, submit the online ProjectFUN scholarship application form. Applications will not be reviewed unless all materials are received by the deadline.
