Please let me know, if any of you know about some good university in US with majors of graphic design. There are lot of graphic design universities in US, I would like to know if someone have experience with this kind of school. I'm seeking for school who accept international student a give scholarship to these students. Any idea??

The most prestigious is probably the Rhode Island School of Design (http://www.risd.edu/). They have a graphic design program and from what I understand, offer opportunities for international students.

A good friend of mine was in the University of Texas at Austin's Design program (http://www.finearts.utexas.edu/aah/) and loved it (I think - she never complained anyway!). :) It's a huge school (about 50,000) but has quite a good reputation, not to mention Austin is simply a great place to live. :mrgreen:

I don't know if it would help, but there is a complete list of graphic design programs in the US on Peterson's (http://www.petersons.com/). I don't know if you're looking for an undergraduate or graduate program, but all are searchable here.

Good luck! :D

You can also try U.S. News and World Reports' College Finder. You can narrow your search by major, location, private/public schools, selectivity, financial aid/tuition costs, etc.

P.S. I'll second Austin as a great place to live. I grew up there. **Hook 'em Horns!**

You're making me nostalgic, Brook (particularly with the weather today in Rochester!).
