AIGA Chicago is committed to creating opportunities for design students to engage with the broader design community. One of the ways we do this is through our two education grants:

Boost Grant for Student Groups

Active student groups can submit proposals that will fund projects intended to bring greater exposure to their work to the larger design community or innovative ideas that need help getting off the ground. Check back for information on submitting a student group grant application in fall 2018.
