Vancouver Film School to grant $100,000+ in Scholarships to Five RGD Members

Members are invited to apply for two full scholarships and three half scholarships to attend the one-year VFS Digital Design Diploma program.


RGD is thrilled to announce that Vancouver Film School (VFS) is running an exclusive Scholarship Program for RGD members, granting admittance to their one-year Digital Design Diploma program.


Through the Digital Design program, students learn the in-demand skills to become an interactive user experience or motion design industry professional. Graduates are working in all creative industries including film & television, game design and industrial enterprises globally as interactive designers, motion designers, project managers, art directors and studio leads.


"RGD has always been a well-respected community for design thinkers in this country,” says VFS Creative Director Evan Biswanger. “At Vancouver Film School, creativity and community is what we value so dearly. Partnering with RGD is something we do with pride. Our Digital Design program offers design thinkers the way forward into the ever-changing landscape of emerging tech and design. From motion to interactive, from typography to projection mapping, the Digital Design program makes you a fierce designer!”

A selection committee from Vancouver Film School will grant full, $27,950 scholarships to two applicants, along with partial scholarships of $15,000 to three applicants. In addition, all other applicants will receive a discount of $5,000 on the course fee.


The scholarship can be applied to the August 30, 2021; January 4, 2022; or May 2, 2022 course start dates.


The application process is straightforward and involves entering your contact information, sharing links to creative work samples and answering two content-based questions. In a continuing effort to diversify the design industry and to tell visual stories that represent us all, BIPOC applicants will be given priority. The program is open to all RGD Members.


All winning entrants will still have to submit an official application to Vancouver Film School.
