Scott Kelly ran the Office of Graduate Admission for 15 years, overseeing an enormous growth in programming and enrollment. Throughout all this growth, Scott never lost his personal touch and investment in individual students. Scott would give you a lift to the airport, bring you a spare blanket, visit your studio just to say “hi,” take you out to lunch if you were down, and attend every single opening, on or off campus.

Scott loved MICA and wanted every graduate student to love MICA, too. He would go out of his way to make sure he was supporting every student as much as possible. After Scott passed in 2014, MICA created the Scott Kelly ‘87 Graduate Student Fund to carry on his legacy of service and support.

The Scott Kelly '87 Graduate Student Fund provides angel funding for MICA graduate students who have hit tough times or financial problems, just like Scott would have done when he was here at MICA.

Scott was enthusiastic, generous, and compassionate – values that shaped MICA’s graduate community. Help us memorialize Scott by donating and doing what he loved more than anything else – supporting MICA’s amazing graduate students!
