Scholarships and grants

Scholarships are financial aid that does not have to be repaid. These gift aid scholarships are merit-based that come from the institute. Scholarships are usually merit-based, meaning they are given based on desired qualities such as artistic and/or academic achievement, or community or extra-curricular involvement. It is important to research our different scholarship opportunities, apply for the ones where you may meet the requirements, and adhere to the specified deadlines. Scholarships are available for both U.S. and non-U.S. citizens.

You may also call the Scholarship Department for more information about the Scholarships, or any questions regarding the scholarship application

Scholarships available to those who qualify. All Candidates must meet all regular admissions requirements and must choose a term they are applying for. If a student changes his/her term date, the scholarship award may be forfeited. Most scholarships cannot be used in conjunction with any other scholarship MTI offers. In most cases, only one award will be given per student. If a student is eligible for multiple scholarships, the scholarship that is most beneficial to the student will be awarded.

The Scholarships are Based on a Student’s Level of Interest and Dedication to Becoming a Full- Time/Long Term Tattoo Artist/Piercer, Judged by our Instructors and Upper Management.

There is a limit on how many scholarships we offer per term or per year and they are all decided on a case-by-case basis.
