The Summer Art & Design Institute (SADI) is a residential four-week pre-college program open to young women and non-binary students in grades 10–12. Students who complete SADI earn 3 undergraduate-level college credits.  
This year, a very limited number of highly competitive scholarships will be provided to students demonstrating creative potential, academic merit, and financial need. Scholarships are grant-funded and limited based on grant amounts. Scholarships are awarded in the amount of full or half SADI program tuition. At this time, student travel to and from the SADI program is not covered by this scholarship.
