Design software developer Vectorworks, Inc.'s 2019 Vectorworks Design Scholarship program offers international students from all design disciplines the opportunity to win up to $10,000 USD. Submission deadline is August 29, 2019.

Designers who have graduated no earlier than 2017 with an acceptable design-oriented degree* are eligible, as are students pursuing an acceptable degree in undergraduate or graduate studies at an accredited college or university. 

Round one consists of four $3,000 Vectorworks Design Scholarships in these categories: Architecture, Landscape Design, Entertainment Design, and Interior Design. Those winners, who also receive free Vectorworks design software for their school, advance to compete for the Richard Diehl Design Award (named for the founder of Vectorworks, Inc.), which awards $7,000 to the winner and comes with professional networking opportunities, media exposure (including a story in our Magazine!) and other benefits.

Eligible projects will be judged on design, technology, concept and originality, presentation, and writing. Projects don't have to be created in Vectorworks software, though computer drawings or models are preferred over hand drawings. Individuals and groups of up to six can apply.

Registration is free and submission is simple. Visit the Vectorworks Design Scholarship website for more information and to submit your work before the end of August. And check back here in October to see the winning projects.
