Established in 2006, the NTID Endowed Scholarship in Visual Arts Disciplines was created to provide academic scholarships annually to RIT/NTID students enrolled in a visual arts degree program. It is hoped that this scholarship will encourage deaf and hard-of-hearing students to pursue careers in the visual arts.

Recipients of the NTID Endowed Scholarship in Visual Arts Disciplines must be enrolled in a visual arts degree program at NTID, or be deaf or hard of hearing and registered in a visual arts degree program at one of RIt's other colleges.

Recipients must demonstrate financial need and be in good academic standing.

Established in 2005, this fund provides academic scholarships to deaf and hard-of-hearing students enrolled in the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, a college of Rochester Institute of Technology. This fund was established to honor the memory of Sally Behnke’s son Ned.  Ned graduated from the College of Imaging Arts and Science with an MFA in 1976.  The scholarship fund provides financial support to deaf and hard-of-hearing students  at NTID pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Art and/or Photography at RIT.

Established in March 2007, the Taylor Family Endowed Scholarship Fund provides academic scholarships annually to deaf and hard-of-hearing students enrolled in the National Technical Institute for the Deaf and cross-registered or directly admitted into the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences Film and Animation Program at Rochester Institute of Technology.

Such uses may include, but not be limited to, scholarship awards, support of an exhibit, or a visual arts activity.
