Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Here's an online newsletter called Art Deadlines List that looks useful:
From the site: "A monthly newsletter (via email or paper) with several hundred announcements (every month!) listing art contests & competitions, art scholarships & grants, juried exhibitions, art jobs & internships, call for entries/proposals/papers, writing & photo contests, residencies, design & architecture competitions, auditions, casting calls, fellowships, festivals, funding, and other opportunities (including some that take place on the web) for artists, art educators and art students of all ages."
The newsletter has both a free and a paid version (I guess the paid version has more listings).

Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships
"Worldstudio AIGA Scholarships allow young people from minority and economically disadvantaged backgrounds not only to realize their artistic dreams, but also to give back to their communities."
Applications and instructions for 2007/2008 are up now.
Also, from the FAQs: From students page:
"Does AIGA offer any scholarships?
Some AIGA chapters offer scholarships, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Minnesota, New Orleans, San Francisco and Upstate New York. We suggest that you work with your school's Financial Aid office. The Foundation Center is also an excellent resource for this kind of information."
Scholarships are offered to Canadian students at Max the Mutt Animation School in Toronto. There is a three year scholarship for the animation diploma program, and there are one year scholarships for the illustration program. More to come. The scholarship fund is growing. check the web site, www.maxthemutt.com.
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

Wow, I just saw this, thanks! Do you guys know about this one?
They have a lot of advertising on this one but once you get past the intro pages it's alright. They've also got articles on how to fill out financial aid forms to get the most money, or how to apply if you want to study abroad, on internships, etc etc.

OMG THANK YOU FOR THAT ROTARY INTERNATIONAL LINK!
Question...see the scholarship im applying for for this school im going to is either all for it or none. Full tuition and fees. now they require me to submite a portfolio preferabbly on a cd. Now im sending it in a cd in and in an envelope, now my brother suggested i get creative with the packaging and my resume. Any input on that?
I say that the most important thing is to be professional. Use high quality paper, have things typed nicely, etc.
It can't hurt to make the packaging more creative--it could help you stand out from the other applicants.
But you also don't want to send something that looks really messy or unprofessional which they might find annoying.
If it were me, I might add a few nice graphic design elements to spruce things up, but not detract. I would use high quality paper and maybe create my own CD envelope that matches my resume. Maybe have a nice label on the CD.
Depends on your personality, I suppose, but those are just my thoughts.
Thanks! I definitely will be pulling out the bucks for this one. that CD envelope is a good idea! Imna go get some info on how to make one from sme friends. Thanks again Emily!

And the idea that Emily suggested about designing out the entire package is nice too. Design out the jewel case, have an insert, print on the face of the CD itself and make it a solid unified presentation.
Hey Emily great idea for young artist wanting to go to Art school.
I was going to post in the 'my experience' thread, but I thought more people might look in this thread.
My 1st year in college I received a Scholarship for the summer at Academy of Art University in San Francisco. And I just recently saw they do a fall Scholarship when I looked on the Utrecht website for art supplies.. Also if you call The Academy, ask them if they still do a portfolio scholarship in the summer as well. That is how I got mine. It is nice if you just want to try out the school or if you know you are going to go there you will save a handful of money.
Here is the link to the Utrecht Contest in fall http://www.utrechtart.com/contest/
and the Academy's website http://www.academyart.edu/
I hope this helps some. I felt I learned a lot at the Academy especially in Illustration. As always if you apply yourself, work hard, and ask around for the good teachers you will get your moneys worth.
