10 emerging designers win scholarships to DesignThinkers Vancouver

With the support of our sponsors, the RGD has awarded 10 cash scholarships to emerging designers to attend DesignThinkers Vancouver this May 28-29.

Student RGDs, Junior Affiliates and Provisional RGDs were invited to submit a 30-second to 1-minute video expressing their enthusiasm for DesignThinkers Vancouver and why they wished to attend the conference.

Each sponsor selected a winner and have provided $500 for them to help cover their costs to attend.
