140 Scholarships available

Contribute to improving the world with IED!

If you're passionate about Design, Fashion, Visual Arts, or Communication, seize the opportunity to be part of our contest. You could win one of 140 scholarships offered by Fondazione Francesco Morelli, IED Istituto Europeo di Design S.p.A. Società Benefit, Istituto Europeo di Design SL, Kunsthal Centro Superior de Diseño SL, and I.L.E.M. srl - Accademia di Belle Arti “Aldo Galli”. These scholarships cover 100% or 50% of the tuition fees for Bachelor's Degree programs, Five-Year Diplomas, Four-Year Diplomas, and Foundation Courses available at our campuses in Milan, Florence, Rome, Turin, Cagliari, Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, and at the Accademia Aldo Galli in Como.

The theme for this academic year is “Your creativity for the Planet”.

Why this theme? Humanity, the environment, and sustainability are key in design. We deeply embodies this philosophy, evident in every course and project we undertake. While there are many angles to approach this theme, what matters is our collective goal.

Find inspiration in the world around you, unleash your creativity, and push your boundaries.

To enter the scholarship competition, submit your concept by May 6th. Your concept should tackle a major planetary issue, identify its causes, and propose design-driven solutions.

Your concept is required to be developed in 2 steps: a mood board and a text.

  • The digital mood board is your chance to express yourself using any technique or style you like. It's a collection of images, objects, colors, and words, whether in physical or digital form. Think of it like a collage that sets the tone and brings your ideas together. By mixing images and objects, the mood board helps you see different angles of your project and boosts your creative process.
  • In the text (which should be between 150 and 300 words), explain your idea, why you chose the design of your mood board, and what inspired you to use that language and technique.

Combine both your text and mood board into one file, keeping it under 8 MB and saving it in any commonly used format. If you decide to make a video, share the link to it on Vimeo.com or Youtube.com.
