Nemetschek Vectorworks has launched the Vectorworks Design Scholarship program to recognize students around the world.
Students across all design disciplines may submit their best work, created in any software program and answer a few short questions to be considered for cash prizes up to $10,000 and other awards.
The scholarship program supports students on two levels. First, scholarships will be presented to multiple winners around the world.
Prize packages include $3,000, Vectorworks Designer with Renderworks software for a computer lab at the winner’s school and virtual or in-person training for faculty and students. The winners will be announced Aug. 30.
Second, all scholarship recipients will compete for The Richard Diehl Award, a global award named after the founder and current chairman of Nemetschek Vectorworks that recognizes the top overall submission to the program.
The winner will be announced Sept. 10 and receive an additional $7,000.
Students may submit their designs through 11:59 p.m. ET on July 30.
An international panel of judges will evaluate the submissions. Entrants must be pursuing a design-oriented degree and enrolled or accepted for enrollment in undergraduate or graduate studies for six or more credits at an accredited college or university in 2014-15.
