SVA Alumni Society, Inc. is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, which exists to service the needs of SVA students and alumni. The Alumni Society hosts programs and events, which connect SVA's over 30,000 alumni with one another and the College.
Due to support from the School of Visual Arts, 100% of all donations to the SVA Alumni Society go directly to the education and financial needs of current SVA students.
Since 2001, the Alumni Scholarship Fund has served as the primary fundraising vehicle for scholarships and awards. The Alumni Scholarship Fund is a restricted fund that provides various scholarships and awards to students from all majors, at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The Fund comprises contributions from SVA alumni, parents of current and past students, faculty, staff and friends of the College. Current programs funded by the Alumni Scholarship Fund include the Alumni Scholarship Awards, The Housing Scholarship Award and the Merit Award. Read about our awards here. Also, read award recipient stories here.
SVA Alumni Society also administers several named funds established by alumni and friends of the Society. Each fund has its own restrictions based upon the intent of the donor who established the fund. Many of these funds provide scholarship support for students in a specific SVA department or program. Please see the detailed descriptions of these Named Scholarship Funds to determine if you would like to make a contribution to enhance the goals of a particular fund.
