Seven years ago IIDA-NE Providence City Center decided to take the proceeds from one of their top events and dedicate them to a student award. They started small by offering a small monetary amount to any student attending a local school and have since enlarged the scope and the amount. They are now proud to offer this award opportunity to any student who is a native of New England. Currently the state of Rhode Island does not offer an accredited design program. That being said, it is not uncommon for our young people to seek out other design programs across the country. They in turn would like to seek out these students and offer them this scholarship opportunity. Please see the entry application materials below. The deadline to apply is 4/19/13.
