Our mission at RISD Continuing Education is to provide an immersive and innovative art and design education for everyone, at all stages of life and all levels of experience. One way we demonstrate that commitment to accessibility is by partnering with and forming relationships with outside organizations that provide scholarships for historically underrepresented students and BIPOC youth interested in pursuing careers in art and design.
