Gensler Scholarships

Gensler Scholarship
Gensler, recognized as the world's largest and leading collaborative design firm, is also committed to the education of emerging design talent. The firm offers two U.S. scholarship opportunities annually for architecture and interior design students.

One of the scholarships offered is Gensler Diversity Scholarship. Gensler believes diversity ignites innovation in design. Gensler also believes in bringing people of diverse backgrounds, experiences, and points of view to work at Gensler.
The Gensler Diversity Scholarship awards underrepresented and minority students enrolled in U.S. not-for-profit NAAB-accredited architecture programs with academic scholarships and summer internship opportunities.

Another scholarship offered is the Gensler Brinkmann Scholarship which was established as a memorial to Don Brinkmann, an inspirational and gifted interior designer who personified the essence of design, vision, and leadership.

In this spirit, the Gensler Brinkmann Scholarship awards students enrolled in U.S. not-for-profit CIDA-accredited interior design programs with academic scholarships and summer internship opportunities.

Applicants must apply online and must complete the requirements that include a resume, a nomination letter from the dean or chair of the program confirming that the applicant meets the eligibility criteria and describe his/her professional excellence, and an advanced-level commercial interior design project with a written description (500 words and 10 pages, maximum).

The firm has more than 3,000 active clients in virtually every industry and delivers projects in architecture, interior design, brand design, product design, planning and urban design, and consulting.
