AIGA Nebraska is always looking for the best ways to provide opportunities for designers and advance their professional craft. After much planning and research, we are happy to announce The Designing Opportunity Scholarship. Periodically, students and emerging designers need funds to help further their craft. This scholarship was created to help fulfill that need by providing $500 to help benefit the education path of their choice. Any form of design is eligible, let it be web or print design, architecture or engineering, artist or builder… the opportunities are vast.
Your AIGA Nebraska Board of Directors will be selecting two recipients based on the merit of an essay, four pieces of work and a letter of recommendation. Submissions will be accepted starting May 20th, 2014 and will end August 20th, 2014. The recipients will be announced during Me, Myself and Design the first week of October.
As an added bonus, each recipient will receive a one-year AIGA membership or renewal. This will help gain better access to all of AIGA’s events and initiatives, which are created to advance design in all aspects of our professions.
So what’s next? Grab your work, get recommendations and kick your writing skills into gear. You can start applying as soon as May 20th, 2014. This is a great opportunity that you should not pass up!
