Adobe Design Circle Scholarships
The Adobe Design Circle Scholarships application is now closed.
Investing in the future of design through scholarship and mentorship Design Circle is an Adobe initiative to drive transformation in the design industry by creating increased visibility for design as a career path and to promoting greater diversity within the field. Through scholarship and mentorship, our goal is to provide aspiring designers with opportunities and support to access educational resources, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, or economic or cultural background.
Adobe will award ten annual college scholarships, up to $25,000 USD per year, for each recipient (up to $100,000 USD total over four years). The focus of the Adobe Design Circle scholarship is interaction design. Our applicants and recipients are focused on pursuing UX, UI, or product design as careers, citing the power of design to solve problems and provide solutions for people and communities. Their goals are to pursue and cultivate their design skills in order to be able to create meaningful change in their communities and to design products and services for the broadest range of people possible. Adobe Design is committed to fostering their talent.
Leaders from across the design industry serve as Design Circle mentors, offering one-on-one career and personal development guidance, portfolio reviews, and networking opportunities to the Design Circle scholars. We believe that mentorship strengthens the impact of the scholarship, while providing real-world experience to the students during their education.
