DAVE School is pleased to announce the offering of a Summer Bachelor's Alumni (SBA) Scholarship to graduates of any diploma program from The Digital Animation & Visual Effects School who opt to enroll in an online completer Bachelor’s degree program. Qualifying recipients of the SBA Scholarship will receive up to $5,000 for their Bachelor’s degree program up to the amount of tuition and fees charged to the recipient. Students are not to be awarded more than one scholarship.
In order to qualify for the SBA Scholarship, students must meet all of the following criteria:
- The student must have graduated from one of DAVE School’s Diploma Programs.
- The student must agree to an online Game Production or Visual Effects Bachelor’s degree program at DAVE School with a start date of June 28, 2021.
- The student must remain enrolled in the Bachelor’s Degree program for the entire academic year.
- The student must be current on all financial obligations to DAVE.
In addition, in order to qualify for the SBA Scholarship in any subsequent academic years, a student must also meet the following criteria:
- The student must achieve satisfactory academic progress in the applicable diploma program, by retaining a 2.0 GPA or greater.
The DAVE School will be the determinant of whether a student qualifies for the SBA Scholarship at the end of each academic year. Students who are qualified will receive the SBA Scholarship in the form of a retroactive disbursement which is not to exceed the amount of tuition and fees that was financed by debt and charged to the student for the applicable Bachelor’s degree program; this of course will be after first applying any other institutional scholarships, grants, or other awards to the student’s account.
DAVE School will not be issuing refunds to students as a result of receiving an SBA Scholarship. Rather, the SBA Scholarship will be proportionately reduced to avoid a resulting credit balance. This scholarship may not be used towards retake fees or the required technology package. If an SBA Scholarship recipient withdraws from the Bachelor’s degree program at any time, the SBA Scholarship will be voided and the student will be responsible for paying the full awarded amount, in addition to tuition and fees incurred.
SBA Scholarship applications are available at DAVE School’s Student Accounts Department. Completed applications must be submitted to the Student Accounts Department no later than June 28, 2021. Applications will be reviewed and awarded in the order they are received, so DAVE School encourages you to apply early. DAVE School will be awarding up to 25 SBA Scholarships. Awards will be based on applying and meeting all qualifying criteria.
