Many times you must have heard about a phrase in life called “Arts doesn’t pay”. But the best part is that people who say “Arts doesn’t pay” are no longer right.  If creativity is in your blood, if you spend most of the time in imagination, if you love storytelling, scriptwriting, music, languages and fine arts then definitely arts is the career for you. 

Arts may not be a vocational subject which is meant for a specific job or task but this doesn't mean that you cannot make a career in arts and cannot make money in this career. A degree in arts will definitely give you a good start to set up a career in arts.

But the fact which might steal your sleep at night or may keep bothering you could be the college tuition fees. Well, it is quite understandable that as arts is a challenging career and doesn't come with the guarantee of a high paycheck once you complete the degree. Nobody wants to graduate with the burden of a huge debt. 

In fact, a report by the U.S. The Department of Education states that most of the renowned art colleges in the country come with high price tags and it generally costs in the range of $27,000 to $35,000. Well, this is not a small figure. Though you will also find other art colleges where fees are lower than this price but anyway it won't be very less.

Are you worried about looking at these figures? Well, there is nothing to be worried about. In order to deal with these high tuition fees, there are College Scholarships. Let’s discuss in detail about art scholarships, who can apply for it, what the eligibility criteria are, how to apply for it, the process, and a lot more.
