In addition to free registration that will be provided to Scholarship winners, they will receive a $500 Scholarships to help cover travel costs to attend the DesignThinkers Conference happening in Toronto on October 24-25, 2018. Scholarship winners will also have the opportunity to introduce a keynote speaker at the event.
To apply, Student RGDs, Provisional RGDs or Junior Affiliate Members are invited to share your “design truth" on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Yes, it's that simple! We want to hear what you believe to be true about design.
Make sure to:
- include your first and last name in the post
- set your social media account to public or send RGD a private message to let us know you've posted
- use the #rgdDT hashtag
Here's some inspiration...
Applicants will be assessed on the thoughtfulness of the truth you share and the creativity of it. Priority will be given to Members who reside 100KM or more away from the location of the conference. Applicants must be enrolled in a Canadian post-secondary institution or be a resident or citizen of Canada. Please note that those who have previously won DT Scholarships are not eligible to participate.
Deadline to apply: 11:59 Pacific Time on Tuesday, September 18, 2018
Scholarship recipients will be asked to contribute a report on their experiences at DesignThinkers to be posted on the RGD website and shared across RGD social media channels after the event.
