National Portfolio Days & Events

We want to see your work. Show off what you’ve been doing.

Sign up for a free review of your portfolio with an SFAI faculty member or admission counselor. 

Pick up an application fee waiver and, if you apply and are admitted, a tuition deposit waiver.

All admitted NPD attendees are eligible for the SFAI Legacy Scholarship of up to $5,000 per year for graduate and undergraduate students, international and domestic. Hope to see you and your work at one of these events.
