    Vectorworks Design Scholarship - Outside Scholarship

    Deadline: August 29, 2019

    What’s better than getting paid for your hard work? That’s easy: getting paid and showing it off. Starting today, undergraduate student designers and recent graduates are encouraged to submit their best work to the 2019 Vectorworks Design Scholarship for a chance to win up to $10,000 USD, gain professional recognition, and propel themselves into a bright future of design.

    The Vectorworks Design Scholarship is designed to meet the needs and qualifications of a variety of students. At the time of submission, scholarship applicants must: have graduated no earlier than 2017 with an acceptable design-oriented degree OR be 1) enrolled or accepted for enrollment in undergraduate or graduate studies for six or more credits at an accredited college or university, and 2) pursuing an acceptable design-oriented degree.

    The following are acceptable degrees: architecture, interior design, facilities management, home builder/remodeler/design-build, M/E/P, space planning, and structural engineering, audio/visual, event planning, exhibition design, lighting design, scenic design, and TV/film, land planning, landscape architecture, landscape design, landscape design/build, and nursery, manufacturing, furniture design, industrial design, machine design, and woodworking.

    Individual entries are accepted. We also encourage multidisciplinary team entries with no more than six members per team. All team members must be eligible under the terms. Eligible students must be enrolled in an accredited design program and registered for six or more credits, or must have graduated no earlier than 2017.

    To submit, simply visit our website and answer a few questions in 150 words or less about your best individual or group project, then attach your work. From there, you can relax until we reveal winners on October 16.

    First-round winners will receive $3,000 USD and will be entered for a chance at the grand prize Richard Diehl Award, worth an additional $7,000 USD. This year, award funds can be used as winners see fit, although it’s certainly encouraged to use these funds in ways that further bolster budding design careers.
