Interior Scholarship – AIT-scholarship of Sto-Foundation 2021/2022

With the Interior Scholarship once again in 2021/2022 four Interior Design students will receive a monthly grant of up to 1,000 Euros for a period of one year (total subsidy: 24,000 Euros) to support their academic education. This Europe-wide initiative has been made possible by the financial support of the Sto-Foundation. Interested students as from the end of their second year, who are enrolled at a European University, are authorized to apply for the Interior Scholarship 2021/2022 until 20 July 2021.

Interior Design studies or comparable degree courses require plenty of time and cause considerable costs. Often it is hardly possible for the students to earn the required money parallel to their studies and consequently, they are rarely able to dedicate their undivided attention and energy to their education. Here, the scholarship wants to create scope and relieve the students economically.

It is an important task of the Sto-Foundation to use financial means as an investment in the education and training of the young generation and thus in the future of our society. The foundation together with the trade journal AIT wants to support the great talent and exemplary commitment of the students to promote the development of renowned interior designers with a great interest in experimentation and secure the progress and variety of interior design. All applicants also receive the AIT magazine free of charge for one year.

People’s Places
Reclaiming public space

With society becoming increasingly virtually and socially segregated, it is particularly important to create spaces that allow spontaneous social interactions. In a lively urban space, people of diverse origins and cultural backgrounds, of various ages, and with different life experiences encounter each other directly and involuntarily. Being aware of this heterogeneous society is the first step towards recognizing it and then helping to shape it.

Develop ideas and objects as well as interventions for the temporary, partial appropriation of items or places in public space that contribute to the revitalization of the city and the creation of social identity.

Use individually well-chosen presentation techniques that are supportive of the concept, such as visualizations, model photos, collages, drawings, sketches or film sequences, to illustrate your very personal, stand-alone idea. Complement these with text.
