Rising Black Designers Scholarship + Design Challenge

Gensler, the largest architecture firm on the global stage, recently announced the 2022 Rising Black Designers Scholarship + Design Challenge.

We believe diversity ignites innovation in design. These scholarships work to break down the barriers of entering the architectural profession for Black students.

The Rising Black Designers Scholarship champions diversity within the architecture and design industry by supporting talented underrepresented architecture students in their studies at some of the nation’s top universities. Applicants must be enrolled in architecture programs within the U.S.

Gensler’s breadth of practice area expertise and inclusive professional environment provides selected students with an opportunity to expand their core competencies and broaden their understanding of the power design holds to effect transformative change. Finalists and winners may also be considered for paid internships in a Gensler office during the summer of 2022.

For information including the application process, eligibility details, and FAQs, please visit the scholarship's webpage. Apply by January 16th.
