Invest in Scholarships Today to Ensure Diverse Voices in Design Tomorrow

Designers can shape the future by facing today’s challenges head-on and envisioning alternatives. If we are to reimagine and rebuild a more just world, we need all voices to turn this moment into a movement. We must diversify design education and practice.

This can only be accomplished by opening design education to more BIPOC and LGBTQ students. Scholarships are the key. 

To support a new generation of design leaders, we ask friends and colleagues to help launch the Diversity in Design Scholarship at CCA. 

Our goal is to raise $100,000 for immediate use awards for talented design students. Celebrated designers and industry leaders, including PayPal Design, Michael & Tammy Borosky, and Mara Holt Skov, have collectively contributed $81,000+ to inspire others.

Gifts at all levels help promising students fulfill their potential in the CCA Design program.
