BYU Design Bursary

Created in 2014 by IDC and Bob’s Your Uncle (BYU) Design, owned by IDC past-president and Registered interior designers Ada Bonini and Cheryl Broadhead, the BYU Design Bursary is awarded annually to one or more emerging professionals who, for reasons of financial hardship, are unable to join their provincial interior design association as an Intern/Provisional member.

Applicants must complete an application form and answer questions about the importance of professional membership. Applications are open in November and recipients are notified in January. Please see the application form for full entry guidelines.

Applications for the BYU Design Bursary are now closed.
