Global design and BIM software provider Vectorworks, Inc. opens its sixth Vectorworks Design Scholarship. This global competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students in major disciplines related to architecture, landscape architecture, landscape design, entertainment and interior design who can now submit either new or past projects for a chance to win up to $10,000 USD.
“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.”
The competition includes a two-round judging process. First-round winners will each receive $3,000 USD and will be entered for the chance to win the grand prize Richard Diehl Award, worth an additional $7,000 USD. In addition, winners' schools 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!”
