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 Student Scholarships for the 2014/2015 academic year. Several scholarships in the $1,000 – $2,000 range are available to award. The criteria for applicants extends eligibility to all ASID Student Members studying in the regions occupied by the Texas Chapter of ASID.

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!

ASID Student Design Competition
The Society holds an annual Student Design Competition for Student Members in any year of study, and it is typically announced in the early fall and due in the late fall / early winter. Past competitions have included an art gallery, a camp activity center, and a spa for multiple sclerosis patients, and many Educators incorporate the project into their curriculum, killing two birds with one stone. GO HERE to find information about this year’s competition, download the Program Overview & Submission Requirements, as well as the official Competition Entry Form.
ACCESS Design Challenge
