IIDA Northland aims to enable and empower the future designers of the North with programming and opportunities to develop and grow. This grant gives current student members an opportunity to think critically about interior design in an uncertain world. $2,000 grants will be offered to up to five students.





Emerging from a global pandemic, we are making our way in a hybrid world. More than ever, people are seeking a sense of place and purpose. Designers have a unique ability to impact humanity through the built environment. Tell us how you hope to use your design talents to positively impact the natural world, elevate diverse communities or strengthen human connections.
