Scholarships and Competitions

Last updated on Oct 19, 2021


After starting the program, Interior Design students have a variety of resources to seek supplementary funding for their education. There are a number of scholarship opportunities and competitions, regularly offered throughout the academic year and open to students of all levels. We compile a list of opportunities as they arrive, and share them periodically. We also encourage students to actively research scholarships, such as with the resources below.
