The new Bachelor of Interior Design program at NewSchool of Architecture and Design (NSAD) is sponsoring a creative design scholarship competition for the 2013-2014 school year. Scholarship amounts for the program, which offers unique global design education opportunities through collaborations with Domus Academy in Milan, Italy, are up to $15,000. The deadline for submission is March 15.
This portfolio-based design scholarship competition is open to high school and transfer students in the United States and from around the world who are passionate about design. The winners, which will be selected on creative merit, include two first prize winners of up to $15,000; two second prize winners of up to $10,000; and two third prize winners of up to $5,000.
The NSAD Bachelor of Interior Design program is offered through the recently-created Domus Academy School of Design at NSAD, which is the result of collaborative efforts between NSAD and Domus Academy in Milan. NSAD's Bachelor of Interior Design program integrates a study abroad experience at Domus Academy in Milan, Italy. Domus Academy in Milan received the prestigious Compasso d'Oro award in 1994 for the quality of its academic and research approaches, and in 2009, the school was nominated for the third time by Bloomberg Businessweek magazine as one of the best design schools in the world. In 2012, Domus Academy was also included in the interior and design field publication, Guide to the World's Leading Graduate Schools from Frame Publishers.
NSAD recently offered an interior design class that was taught by architect and interior designer Paolo Giachi, who came as a visiting faculty member from Domus Academy in Milan. Giachi, whose specialty is in designing luxury retail stores around the world, guided his students in designing their own versions of a luxury boutique store. Student renderings from the interior design class at NSAD can be viewed on the NSAD website.
