May 06, 2014 -- Today, we’re announcing the Vectorworks Design Scholarship – a chance for students across all disciplines to win up to $10,000 by answering a few short questions and submitting their best design, created in any software program. The entry deadline is July 30, 2014.
“Students represent the next generation of creative potential, so we launched this program to help them achieve their professional goals,” said the company’s Chief Marketing Officer Stewart Rom. “The Vectorworks Design Scholarship gives us the opportunity to inspire young minds, remove some of the financial pressures associated with higher education, and put into students’ hands the tools they need to develop their ideas from concept to completion.”
Vectorworks Design Scholarships will be presented to multiple winners around the globe. Prize packages include $3,000, installation of Vectorworks Designer with Renderworks software in a computer lab at the winner’s school, and virtual or in-person training for faculty and students. Winners will be announced August 30, 2014. Then, all Vectorworks Design 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 scholarship program. The winner will be announced September 10, 2014, and receive an additional $7,000.
“In all the years I’ve known Rich, he’s exhibited a tireless commitment to the design profession and championed designers at every level, so providing a scholarship in his name is a wonderful way to honor him,” said Architect Scott Campbell of Dakantus AS, Nemetschek Vectorworks’ global distribution partner in Norway. “We are excited to recognize the scholarship winners and see their visionary designs.”
