Duration of Scholarships

Scholarships can be renewed for up to four years or until completing your degree, whichever comes first. Scholarships are renewed each year pending academic progress.

Scholarship Benefits

Adobe Creativity Scholars are eligible for up to U.S. $25,000.00 per academic year for required tuition and fees*. The exact amount of each Adobe Creativity Scholarship will be determined by several critical factors including:

  • the Creativity Scholar’s expected financial need
  • the location of their college/university
  • the type of college/university (state university, private university, etc.)

Tuition amounts vary greatly from country to country, and Creativity Scholars attending college/university in countries with higher tuition costs will receive larger scholarship awards. Every effort will be made to cover most, if not all, of each Creativity Scholar’s required tuition costs. However, please be aware that some scholarship recipients, specifically those attending higher cost universities in the United States, may not have their full financial need met by this scholarship.

In addition to receiving the scholarship, Creativity Scholars will receive a free Creative Cloud subscription for each year they are in the program and may occasionally be given other opportunities by Adobe to further their professional development. Some past and present examples include invitations to conferences or film festivals and opportunities to engage with Adobe employees.

*Barring extreme cases, the calculation of tuition and fees will not include room & board.

Payment of Awards

For scholarship recipients studying at a U.S. college or university, a check will be sent directly to your educational institution. Scholarship recipients attending a non-U.S. higher education institution will receive their scholarship payment either by check or wire transfer.
