The sixth Vectorworks Design Scholarship is now open for submissions from qualifying students. Put on by the global design and BIM software leader, Vectorworks, Inc., the global competition is open to both undergrad and graduate-level students in major disciplines related to architecture, landscape architecture, landscape design, entertainment design, and interior design.
Students can submit either new or past projects for a chance to win up to USD 10,000.
“We understand that students have a lot of expenses related to their education beyond tuition and we don’t want this to hinder them from starting their professional journey,” said Vectorworks Academic Marketing Programs Specialist Jen Hart. “Our Design Scholarship competition is the perfect opportunity for students around the world to show off their creative abilities for a chance to help fund their academic endeavors.”
There is a two-round judging process. First-round winners will each receive USD 3,000 and will be entered for the chance to win the grand prize Richard Diehl Award, worth an additional USD 7,000. Moreover, each winner’s school will receive free Vectorworks Design Suite software and free virtual or in-person workshop training for faculty and students.
“I encourage every student to submit their work, no matter what your skill level is with drafting and rendering,” said Stephen Jones, professor of theatrical design at California State University – Sacramento and one of this year’s judges. “This scholarship competition is a brilliant way to have your work seen by amazing professionals in the industry, and a great way to help jump start your careers. Be fearless, bold and start making your mark on the industry!”
Submission deadlines and prize award amounts vary based on the country and/or region. Exact dates of regional submissions can be found here.
