Nemetschek Vectorworks Launches Vectorworks Design Scholarship Program

Students from across all design disciplines can win up to 10,000 US Dollars in Prizes


This week Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., has launched the Vectorworks Design Scholarship program to recognize students around the world who are pursuing education as a means to build their skills and solve challenging design problems. Students across all design disciplines may submit their best work, created in any software program, and answer a few short questions to be considered for cash prizes up to 10,000.USD and other awards.

Vectorworks Design Scholarship Program

“Students represent the next generation of creative potential, so we launched this program to help them achieve their professional goals,” said the company’s Chief Marketing Officer Stewart Rom. “The Vectorworks Design Scholarship gives us the opportunity to inspire young minds, remove some of the financial pressures associated with higher education and put into students’ hands the tools they need to develop their ideas from concept to completion.”

The scholarship program supports promising students on two levels. First, Vectorworks Design Scholarships will be presented to multiple winners around the globe. Prize packages include $3,000 USD, Vectorworks®

Designer with Renderworks® software for a computer lab at the winner’s school and virtual or in-person training for faculty and students. Winners will be announced August 30, 2014.

 The Richard Diehl Award

Second, all Vectorworks Design Scholarship recipients will compete for The Richard Diehl Award, a global award named after the founder and current chairman of Nemetschek Vectorworks that recognizes the top overall submission to the program. The winner will be announced September 10, 2014, and receive an additional $7,000 USD.

Diehl’s vision for Vectorworks software stemmed from the belief that he was an artist providing a canvas for other artists to create their best work. Today, Vectorworks includes several design product solutions that are equally evocative and demonstrate that it is possible to pursue aesthetic satisfaction and practice design stewardship simultaneously. The scholarship will help tomorrow’s visionaries pursue similar goals.

“In all the years I’ve known Rich, he’s exhibited a tireless commitment to the design profession and championed designers at every level, so providing a scholarship in his name is a wonderful way to honor him,” said Architect Scott Campbell of Dakantas AS, Nemetschek Vectorworks’ global distribution partner in Norway. “We are excited to recognize the scholarship winners and see their visionary designs.”

Students may submit their designs at through 11:59 p.m. ET on July 30, 2014. An international panel of judges will evaluate the submissions. Entrants must be pursuing a design-oriented degree and enrolled or accepted for enrollment in undergraduate or graduate studies for six or more credits at an accredited college or university in 2014-2015.
