November 4, 2014

SAIC received a $5 million, multi-year gift from the Pritzker Foundation, one of the largest in the School’s history, to establish the Pritzker Graduate Fellowship Fund, which will offer full-tuition, merit-based scholarships to students pursuing graduate degrees at SAIC. The competitive fellowship began in the 2015–16 academic year and will be awarded annually to some of the most talented incoming graduate students from the US and around the world, providing a transformative experience for top-tier students and greatly enhancing their practice and time at SAIC. Thomas Pritzker is a member of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Board of Trustees.
