Call For Entries: ASID Foundation Scholarships and Awards

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Attention interior designers, established or otherwise: The American Society of Interior Designers Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2013 scholarships and awards. Five prizes totaling $23,000 will be awarded to both pros making significant contributions to the profession and all levels of students who show great promise and, y'know, still need to eat. The awards and scholarship program is open to both ASID members and non-members, and there's no fee to enter. 

Philip Gill, Allied ASID, the winner of the last year’s inaugural David Barrett Memorial Scholarship, encourages members of the design community to apply. “This award has not only helped me complete my master’s of interior architecture studies, but it has validated my work and study of traditional and classical interior design and furniture,” he says. “It has helped elevate my level of expertise in my field and allowed me to pursue my passion in this design specialty.”

The deadline to enter is April 15, and more information on application requirements can be found here.

Available scholarships and awards include:

The Irene Winifred Eno Grant provides financial assistance to individuals or groups engaged in the creation of an educational program or an interior design research project dedicated to health, safety and welfare.

The Joel Polsky Academic Achievement Award
