Designing Opportunity Scholarship

AIGA Nebraska is proud to offer the Designing Opportunity Scholarship annually to students and emerging creatives who exhibit excellence in their field, in order to provide winning recipients with financial support to further their craft.

Any form of design is eligible: web, print and communication design, architecture, engineering, fine arts and more. If it requires critical thought and creativity, we’d love to include you.


To apply for the Designing Opportunity Scholarship, you don’t need to be a designer. However, you must:

  • be a Nebraska resident or attending a Nebraskan education path;
  • include a letter of recommendation;
  • submit four example pieces of your own work (whatever type of work that may be);
  • write an essay response (250-750 words) answering the question, “How will this scholarship provide an opportunity for you?”;
  • have a specific chosen education path. (If selected, your scholarship award will be sent to the education path listed here.)

How to Apply:

Applications will be accepted from May 10 through September 9, 2016.

Scholarship recipients will be announced at Me, Myself & Design this October in Lincoln, NE.
