Are you a talented and innovative designer? Are you developing projects that positively impact communities? Are you solving design problems that address academic, civic, or social concerns? If so, you may be eligible for a Vectorworks Academic Research Grant.
Our grant program supports activities that encourage, preserve, and communicate the best approaches to solving global design issues. Candidates can represent any design-related discipline, and both individuals and groups are encouraged to submit projects.
“As a leader in the global design software industry, we have a duty to support the design community with the resources they need to turn pioneering ideas into reality,” said the company’s Chief Marketing Officer Stewart Rom. “Nemetschek Vectorworks is therefore proud to invest in the future by funding projects that apply novel approaches to pressing design challenges, share breakthrough learning models, and positively impact the built environment.”
Vectorworks Academic Research Grants will be provided in U.S. dollars to pay for expenses related to the following types of projects:
- Designing or marketing a public space that incorporates humane design concepts and principles or is of historic importance
- Increasing awareness of an idea or solution through educational avenues (e.g., an individual developing a curriculum, arranging a symposium, establishing a program or department, or writing a textbook/resource guide on the subject)
- Disseminating information for greater public/professional awareness
