Community is a foundational element of the IDSA experience. We already support a robust network of Professional Chapters across the country to help you connect one-on-one to your local community. While these personal relationships have proven invaluable over the years, we all know that so much of our life now happens online. For this reason, the IDSA team has been hard at work re-envisioning the way you digitally connect with other IDSA members—locally and beyond.
Did a scholarship help put you on the path to industrial design? Did an educator, professional or a conference make a crucial connection in your career? Have you influenced someone entering the ID field? Then you know how much financial support and educational initiatives can make a difference.
“Being awarded the 2015 Design Foundation Undergraduate Scholarship solidified my decision to go back to school to further my education in design,” says Natalie Quinnies, S/IDSA. “It also validates that industrial design is not only something that I have found myself becoming increasingly passionate about, but a way for me to continually challenge my understanding and outlook of the world around me.”
Since 2001, the Design Foundation has impacted many up and coming designers. And next year, it celebrates 15 years of advancing industrial design education. We want to do more. We need to do more—with your help.
