Today I am thrilled to announce the 2010 D*S Scholarship is live! Since I started Design*Sponge back in 2004, it has always been my first priority to celebrate beautiful design from artists and designers of all ages. I’ll never forget the first Pratt student show I attended and being struck by the overwhelming amount of talent that I saw in those young designers. From that moment on I knew it would be part of my mission to support and celebrate these up-and-coming designers. Not only because they could use our help, but because they were going to become the people we were writing about and being inspired by for years to come. So today I’m thrilled to kick off our third scholarship today with $10,000 to donate to both undergraduate and graduate students. Here are the details:
We will be awarding eight prizes:
Undergraduate Student Awards: 1st Place ($2,500), 2nd Place ($1,500), 3rd Place ($750), and 4th Place ($250)
Graduate Student Awards: 1st Place ($2,500) 2nd Place ($1,500) 3rd Place ($750) 4th Place ($250)
The scholarship is open to any art & design students are are currently enrolled in a full-time undergraduate or graduate programs (Proof of enrollment is required). This year we will be opening the scholarship to international students as well! Please note: all payments will be made in US dollars.
A big thank you to our sponsors this year: Glos and Room & Board. Glos has kindly provided our first place prizes for both undergraduate and graduate students and Room & Board has kindly provided our second place prizes for both undergraduate and graduate students. All remaining prizes will be supplied by Design*Sponge.
In addition, Glos will be giving all finalists (undergraduate and graduate) the opportunity to develop a collection of creative surface coverings to be sold through Julia Rothman has designed a flyer for the 2010 Scholarship that you can print out right here and post on your class room walls or places where students gather in your area.
