Financial Aid + Scholarships

Financing your future

Kansas City Art Institute is dedicated to helping students realize their educational objectives by providing scholarships, grants, loans, student employment, and other financial aid programs. KCAI helps over 98% of our students find the financial aid they need to pursue their B.F.A. degree. We awarded more than $12.5 million dollars of institutional aid in the 2015-16 academic year.

To apply for financial aid, file your FAFSA and enter our school code 002473. KCAI’s priority deadline for filing the FAFSA is March 1.
