No matter what type of design you are interested in, no matter what industry you might launch your future career in, the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) has a scholarship competition that is perfect for you. The FIDM Designer of Tomorrow Scholarship is open to all graduating high school seniors as well as college undergraduates without prior training in their subfield of design.
This is a project-based competition with a number of different categories for entry. Projects vary, so you will need to check the instructions for your year and for the category of design you are interested in. Design fields which are currently part of the FIDM competition include graphic design, fashion design, interior design, fashion merchandising, visual design, and digital media art. Award amounts may vary from year to year, and FIDM also has a number of other scholarships available which can further assist you in paying for your education. So be sure to check out their website for the full list. If you would like to be selected as a Designer of Tomorrow, be sure to submit your project entry by April 30th to meet the application deadline. Good luck embarking on your design education!
