Students are being challenged by Nemetschek to showcase their best Building Information Modelling Vectorworks projects for the chance to win up to US$10,000.

The 2015 Vectorworks® Design Scholarship scheme was officially launched yesterday and is open to students in the United States. Individual or group work can be submitted for the contest, and entrants must also answer three accompanying questions in 150 words or less.

Regional winners will be awarded $3,000 each and will move on to the national finals to try and win an additional $7,000 and The Richard Diehl Award. Winnings must be spent for educational purposes and the winning student’s school will also receive free Vectorworks software and in-person or virtual training for both staff and students.

“Today’s students are tomorrow’s visionaries, solving all types of design challenges that the Vectorworks Design Scholarship program lets us celebrate,” explained Stewart Rom, Nemetschek Vectorworks’ Chief Marketing Officer. “We established this program to support their academic dreams by offering financial assistance, and we can’t wait to see the inspiring work that students submit this year!”

The deadline for entries is August 31st, 2015 and the winners will be announced on October 15th.

This news follows Vectorworks’ strong performance in the UK‘s NBS BIM Report 2015, where it topped a poll looking at the most commonly used BIM software amongst those surveyed.
