Scholarships & Competitions

Students, there is no reason NOT try to take advantage of scholarships, design competitions, and other awards that ASID makes available on the National, Chapter and Design Community levels. Because so many Students procrastinate, failing to send in their applications and entries, there is a good chance that you may win if you actually invest a little time to get it together.



SCHOLARSHIPS & GRANTS

The Texas Chapter actively seeks to provide scholarship opportunities for current Interior Design majors within our Chapter. Students enrolled full-time in undergraduate Interior Design programs are eligible to apply. Winning a scholarship could provide excellent funding while adding impressive content to your resume.
