Have you ever been impressed by the new-age, well-lit interiors of dentist and orthodontic offices? Have you ever wondered what goes into designing them?
When you start the project, you open a blank Vectorworks page, import a building model, intent on creating a stunning interior. You have eyes on first prize, which comes with prize money your classmates desire, too. The deadline approaches and your course grade depends on your creativity. You take a deep breath.
Vectorworks loves supporting student designers. Our Design Scholarship does just that — it’s a chance for students to win a substantial cash prize along with recognition in the realm of design.

We are proud to have been involved in the latest Society of British Interior Designers (SBID) student competition and to be actively involved in their events. It is a privilege to participate in the various activities and competitions SBID holds for interior designers.
Each event held by the SBID helps to find the finest young designers and bridge the gap between students and their careers. By partnering with SBID, we are able to offer a wide array of opportunities for the interior designers of the future.

When we think of Vectorworks software users, we typically picture design professionals or aspiring university students, but in Ladue, Missouri, Sharrie Cognac is working with an unlikely group: middle school students. Since 1998, Cognac has been teaching the seventh and eighth graders of Ladue Middle School how to design and draft using Vectorworks software as a part of her Industrial Technologies courses.
Some designers don’t think of interior design as an architecturally intensive field, but Lena Munther begs to differ. As the owner of Munther Design, she’s a practicing interior architect who enjoys challenging the status quo of what her profession means to others.

When it comes time for students to start their master project, it can seem like an ominous, looming task, and making up your mind on what to focus on can be difficult, too. But for Raphael Leonida, a recent DeMontfort University graduate, he knew exactly what he wanted to design for his master project: an occupational therapy center.
Long nights, early mornings — it’s tough being a student sometimes. On top of the large workload, you have to think about the cost of tuition, materials, and all the other odds and ends that accompany college life. That’s why we want the hard work you put into your projects to be worth more than just a good grade, so we’re launching the third annual Vectorworks Design Scholarship. Now your all-nighters can score you up to $10,000 USD, a major resume booster, and free publicity that will get you noticed by potential employers.

Marinella Vronti, a recent interior design graduate from the UK, has always known that she wanted a career in the creative industry. “During school, I was always attracted to subjects like art,” Vronti says. “I always knew that I would never be the student to pursue politics or a career in business. I wanted to be able to create things.”
