RSA-US Student Design Awards (SDA-US) – an undergraduate competition to inspire collaborative design-led social change in the areas of architecture, interiors, urban transit, industrial design, fashion and textiles connects design students and faculty with industry needs.
Who are we?
The RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, founded in London, 1754) is committed to finding innovative solutions to today’s challenges.
Why do we need SDA-US? Why now?
“It is a pivotal moment in the field of socially responsible design. More than ever, design professionals are involved in projects that have a social impact. Student enrollment in educational programs or social innovation is growing exponentially.” Bill Moggridge, RSA Royal Designer for Industry, co-founder of IDEO and Director, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum 2010-12.
Who can participate?
We’ve invited studio groups from some of our top design schools to get involved. We know their students love creating new things, and have no interest in the status quo.
When’s the deadline for entries?
