As part of AIGA Colorado’s mission to communicate the value of design, we realize that learning doesn’t stop when you leave the classroom with a degree in hand. In fact, that’s when it really starts. New technologies and expanding opportunities require new skills. Designers are constantly evolving to remain relevant, creative and profitable. This is an exciting time to be a professional designer, but it can also be tricky to keep up or set the pace.
That’s why AIGA Colorado has created the Professional Grant. These funds are designed to help you gain a new skill, perspective, or income stream. This grant is just for you — our Sustaining and Supporting Members — to help further develop your career and meet your professional goals.
Have a conference you want to attend? Training you want to participate in? Want to start a special project but don’t have the capital? Maximize your membership and grow your passion for design with a Professional Grant. We want to support and nurture our design community by supporting you, our foundation members.
Each year, AIGA Colorado will award one finalist up to $1500 to put towards their project. The awards will be announced in the Spring at an AIGA event.
Our past winners include Katherine McCoy (2014) and Marni Myers (2014). Both finalists demonstrated exceptional work and dedication to their local community.
Submissions are due on April 6, 2015.
