Even the best and most creative social design concepts fall flat at the implementation stage, and in many cases the imagined outcome is far greater than the actual impact. Design Ignites Change encourages positive and meaningful change by providing established and emerging designers the resources to produce successful social design projects.
Our Professional Fellowship gives creatives the opportunity to incubate and develop their project by offering mentoring and guidance, as well as seed money to help them launch their concept.
The Educator Grant supports college and university faculty that incorporate the implementation of a social impact design project into their curriculum.
We also present the Student Innovation Awards, which provide $1,000 and $500 to college students in recognition of their exceptional work in support of positive social change.
