To enter the Scholarship Program, Student RGDs, Provisional RGDs and Junior Affiliate Members were invited to select a quote from a previous DesignThinkers speaker and share how it influenced them and their work.
The final winners were chosen by generous industry Sponsors. The winners receive $500 from the Sponsor and a free DesignThinkers ticket, provided by RGD.
We received almost 40 entries (the most we've ever received!) and were amazed by the honesty and sincerity we saw in every post. To see all of the Scholarship entries, search #rgdDT on social media.
Congratulations to the Scholarship winners and to everyone else who entered!
