There are only a few weeks left to apply for The Design Coach 2022 Scholarship Program, which is open to Australian design professionals of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels.

In its inaugural year, the scholarship provides the winner with access to 12 months of The Design Coach’s classes, courses and coaching with all the tools, techniques, systems and processes to “equip them for future success”.

You don’t need an architecture or design qualification to apply. Entrants are instead invited to submit a digital portfolio of past work with high-res images and a project overview, along with a short biography and completed application form.

Applicants must submit a portfolio of work that demonstrates strong capabilities in design through visual work and ideas.

Applications for The Design Coach 2022 Scholarship Program close on 15 December 2021 with the winner to be announced on 15 February 2022.

The winner will be required to post on social media about their scholarship journey and make themselves available for a number of PR and marketing opportunities.

Founded by interior designer Mitchell, The Design Coach’s goal is to create a community among solo designers, with support and education in business management for designers through master classes, retreats, workshops and one-on-one coaching.
