Study abroad is an investment in your future from which you will reap lifelong rewards. It will forever change the way you perceive yourself and the world around you. Studio Art Centers International makes every effort to make study abroad an achievable goal for every student.
Any/all financial aid received from a U.S. college or university can be transferred to cover fees for study at SACI. SACI also offers a generous scholarship awards program for deserving students during the Fall and Spring Terms. The SACI Scholarship Brochure can be found in the Downloads section of this website.
