Vectorworks is offering students up to $10,000 (US) in the sixth global design competition offered by this company.

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. In addition, winners’ schools will receive free Vectorworks Design Suite software and free virtual or in-person workshop training for faculty and students.

“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 endeavours.”

Stephen Jones, Professor of Theatrical Design at California State University and one of this year’s judges said: “I encourage every student to submit their work, no matter what your skill level is with drafting and rendering. 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.
