    • I have not come across any scholarships specifically for MFA in costume design. Check out Fastweb and fill out a profile – they might be able to find something. I also recommend checking with the Costume Design department at your college – they might have leads on scholarships for students like yourself. Specific scholarships like that are sometimes not widely advertised, but the scholarship providers usually let the college departments know about them because it is probably a small field.

  5. Are there any scholarships for a female Caucasian high school senior that was raised by a single mother due to the fact that her biological father died in a car crash before her mother gave birth?

    • Hello! I don’t have a specific list. But, a great place to look is Fastweb.com. You’ll be able to enter a lot of information about yourself (race, single mother, etc.) and then it will give you a list of scholarships that you meet the qualifications.
