IA Interior Architects Diversity in Design Scholarship

IA Interior Architects Diversity in Design Scholarship

In partnership with the IIDA Foundation, the IA Interior Architects Diversity in Design Scholarship seeks to recognize that creating a diverse design community is paramount in making the world of design a more inclusive and innovative place.

With the understanding that the design profession is enriched by increasing diversity at all levels, IA Interior Architects established the scholarship to recognize outstanding students who represent the future of the industry. IA also believes that interior design students will be a major force leading the way so the design industry has a well-defined voice in the diversity discussion. Every student, with their varied backgrounds and inherent differences, will help push the profession to be better and champion this important movement. IA is looking forward to hearing what the next generation of designers has to say.
