IIDA’s 2023 IA Interior Architects Diversity in Design Scholarship program invites interior design and architecture students to write a brief essay of up to 500 words to describe the connection between Sustainability and EDI, and how should that connection affect our exploration of solutions to build a solid foundation for the next generation? The goal of the competition is to enrich diversity of thought and practice in the interior design industry by supporting students representing diverse voices and perspectives.
Your essay must be submitted digitally through the award website. Each submission must include your essay and entry form with:
- Your name
