d*s scholarship reminder

Hi everyone! I wanted to post a reminder about the 2010 D*S Scholarship! Today is the final day to turn in applications, which are due tonight at 11:59pm EST. This year, there are $10,000 in awards being given to both undergraduate and graduate students (international students are welcome). To read the full details and apply, please visit the D*S scholarship page.

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.

In addition, we’re thrilled to announce that The Monacelli Press has generously offered to sponsor our Honorable Mention prizes for the 2010 Scholarship. The Monacelli Press publishes some of the best books about design, art and architecture- you can click here for more information on their titles.
