SEI travel scholarships are only available for RISD students (including Brown RISD Dual Degree students). RISD scholarships are awarded based on a combination of financial need and academic standing. Priority is given to students based upon estimated financial need, as determined by Student Financial Services. Preference is given to those who have not had previous funded travel opportunities at RISD and to students who will soon graduate, i.e. undergraduate Juniors and Seniors, 2nd year graduate students.
