The Vectorworks Design Scholarship invites undergraduate and graduate students in major disciplines related to the architecture, landscape architecture, entertainment, and interior design fields to submit their recent, finished work.

Our scholarship is your unique opportunity to take the next step in your journey of professional development. In submitting work to the Vectorworks Design Scholarship, designers are given the opportunity to win scholarship prizes that will help you (and your classmates) continue to develop your creative designs.

Vectorworks software serves multiple industries and offers this scholarship to students from all of these disciplines:


Your design enhances the ways we inhabit our planet, influenced by our past and inspired by our future.


Your design enriches our outdoor spaces to tie the natural and built environments together.

Interior Design

Your design breathes life into a space, drawing people in and making them want to stay.


Your design creates unforgettable experiences with stunning visuals that leave lasting impressions.

We promote original thinking, but also like following the rules. In fact, we ask that you follow them, too. Our panel of international judges will evaluate your work on five main criteria: Design, Technology, Originality, Presentation, and Writing.
