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.
Texas Chapter Level
The ASID Texas Chapter invites students to apply for its academic Student Scholarships, which is held in conjunction with the annual ASID Texas Student Symposium (commonly held in October). All materials are typically due before the end of September. Visit the official ASID Texas Student Symposium website, asidtxstudentsymposium.org, to find out details.
The ASID Foundation provides scholarships and awards for undergraduate and graduate students in a number of categories and award amounts, the largest of which is the Daltile Interior Design Scholarship, presented by the ASID Foundation. In this year’s design challenge, students will compete for more than $25,000 in scholarships, with the grand prize winner receiving a $10,000 scholarship. Go here to find out details, deadlines and award information. (Note that they may not have them listed if they are at a certain point in the scholarship / award cycle.)
Start entering design competitions while you are in school. Not only will your wins impress interviewers, but you will create the career-building habit of entering competitions that will serve you well when you become a practicing designer. Take the opportunity to shine!
