6 Scholarships

IED Italy and IED Spain offer 6 scholarships* covering 50% of the tuition fee for Semester & Academic year courses in Milan, Florence, and Madrid.

Based on your creativity and the artistic and cultural references you love most, you will have to develop a visual story about yourself, using the techniques and expressive tools you are most confident in, so as to express the value of your project: drawings, collages, photographs, images or videos.

If you need inspiration for your project then take a look at the examples of works from previous editions of the scholarship competitions, which we have selected for you and fill in the form below by June 8, 2023.

On 23 May at 14.30 IED is organising a presentation on the international scholarship competition for Academic Year & Semester courses. During the event you will have the chance to receive more details about the courses being promoted, the brief, examples of projects to take inspiration from and you will have the opportunity to clarify any doubts.

Register for the competition to be able to participate in the event.

* Students residing in Italy can only apply for the scholarship for the One Year course offered in Spain while students residing in Spain can only apply for Semester and Academic Year Courses offered in Italy. All other international students can apply either for Semester and Academic Year/One Year courses in Italy or Spain.

Concept evaluation will be carried out by a Panel made of directors and teachers coming from the Schools of Design, Fashion and Visual Arts.

The Panel will evaluate projects with a score from 0 to 5, according to the following criteria:

  • coherence with the design theme/brief;
  • the ability to clearly communicate the message the candidate wants to convey;
  • the originality of the candidate’s project;
  • the overall aesthetics of the candidate’s design project.

Semester and Academic/One Year courses are designed for fresh high school graduates who wish to move their steps towards the topic of their interest before committing to an Undergraduate programme, or for university students who wish to deepen a specific subject, and who already have previous studies and knowledge in the field.
