RGD Invites Applications for the 2015 DesignThinkers Scholarship Program
RGD designthinkers scholarship
RGD Student Members and Provisional RGD Members requiring financial assistance to attend the 2015 DesignThinkers Conference are invited to apply for a $500 Scholarship.

There are eight available bursaries, generously provided by Blurb, Critical Mass, Davis, Fusion Design Group, john st., Juniper Park, Razorfish and SapientNitro.


Applicants are asked to submit a written or 2-minute video response with answers to the following questions:

1. What is your motivation for taking part in the conference and how would you benefit from attending this year's DesignThinkers?
2. How would you use the experience gained through the conference in your work? How would your participation benefit your organization (if applicable)?
3. Which DesignThinkers speaker are you most interested in hearing and why?
4. Why do you need a scholarship to attend DesignThinkers?


In accepting the scholarship, recipients will be required to contribute a report on their experiences at DesignThinkers to be posted on the RGD Student Blog and shared across the Association's social media channels.


Applications will be assessed based on motivation and applicability of the skills anticipated to be gained from the experience of attending the event. Priority will be given to Student RGDs and Provisional RGDs who reside 100KM or more away from the location of the conference. Please note that only Student RGD and Provisional RGD Members who have not won in previous years are eligible to receive DT scholarships.


Deadline to apply: 11:59pm EST on Monday, October 5, 2015
