IA Interior Architects established the IA Interior Architects Diversity in Design Scholarship in partnership with the IIDA Foundation to support and elevate students that represent diverse voices and perspectives in interior design, with the goal of enriching diversity of thought and practice across the industry.

A diverse design community drives innovation and inclusion by incorporating different experiences, voices, and ideas, and as the future of design, students are a major force pushing the industry towards more diverse and inclusive workplaces.

The program awards one $5,000 scholarship, one $3,000 scholarship, and four $500 scholarships annually, and is open to students worldwide. Graduate and undergraduate students who are currently enrolled in an interior design or architecture program are encouraged to apply.

“At IA Interior Architects our commitment to the future of interior architecture is a firm-wide passion. This translates into a desire to mentor the development of young, visionary designers within our studios. We also recognize that the future of design begins at the university level. IA is proud to be part of this new IIDA Foundation initiative and we hope this scholarship will play a part in moving that cause forward.”

-Tom Powers, co-President/CEO, IA Interior Architects
