Today’s students are tomorrow's visionaries, solving all types of design challenges that the Vectorworks Design Scholarship program lets us celebrate.

As part of its commitment to helping students succeed, global design software developer Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc. has launched the 2015 Vectorworks® Design Scholarship program. Students from across all design disciplines around the world are encouraged to submit their best individual or group work by Monday, August 31, 2015 for the opportunity to win up to $10,000 USD.

The submission process is simple; students submit their best project, which may include work completed for a class assignment, and answer three questions, each in 150 words or less. An esteemed panel of judges will evaluate submissions on the basis of design integrity, effective use of computer technology and originality, as well as the articulation and communication of a design vision.

“Today’s students are tomorrow's visionaries, solving all types of design challenges that the Vectorworks Design Scholarship program lets us celebrate,” said Stewart Rom, chief marketing officer at Nemetschek Vectorworks. “We established this program to support their academic dreams by offering financial assistance, and we can't wait to see the inspiring work that students submit this year!”

In its second year, the scholarship program supports the next generation of creative potential on two levels. First, regional winners receive $3,000 USD and advance to compete for The Richard Diehl Award in round two for an additional $7,000 USD. Winnings can be applied to tuition, housing, textbooks, studying abroad, conference fees or other educational purposes. Additionally, winners’ schools receive free Vectorworks design software, as well as free in-person or virtual training for faculty and students.

The Richard Diehl Award is a global award named for the founder and chairman of Nemetschek Vectorworks. Through the scholarship, Diehl strives to inspire young minds and give students the tools needed to develop ideas from concept to completion.
