Do you know 10 students passionate about design?! Check here to find your local group or start a student group from scratch. Make sure to activate your annual registration. Once you’re active, here are some tips and guides for running a successful student group.
Student Group Funding
Apply for our annual student group grant. This fund is intended to empower your group to go to studio tours, bring in speakers, workshops, and whatever you want to do in design. These funds will be used for your group as a whole, not for any one individual. Rolling application deadline, but due by the 25th of each month.
Download your application! Apply for our annual Senior Scholarship by September 15, 5pm. Two students will be awarded $1,000 each at the A Awards on October 13. We have three awesome judges this year: Michael Ong (Hallmark), Michael Eppelheimer (VML), and Suba Nadarajah (VML).

If you are a student currently in a design program, select the “student” attribute when you join. This attribute will give you access to invaluable resources and opportunities to help you make the transition from student to professional designer:
AIGA student groups are on more than 200 college campuses across the country, offering students the opportunity to be involved in the local design community, create a community of their own and build leadership skills. You can link yourself to your school’s AIGA student group when you join.
Join now to take advantage of all that AIGA membership has to offer.
When you graduate, be sure to select a new attribute, such as “Emerging designer”, so that we can meet your needs most effectively.
