RSA-US Student Design Awards (SDA-US) – an undergraduate competition to inspire collaborative design-led social change in the areas of architecture, interiors, urban transit, industrial design, fashion and textiles connects design students and faculty with industry needs.


The RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, founded in London, 1754) is committed to finding innovative solutions to today’s challenges.“It is a pivotal moment in the field of socially responsible design. More than ever, design professionals are involved in projects that have a social impact. Student enrollment in educational programs or social innovation is growing exponentially.” Bill Moggridge, RSA Royal Designer for Industry, co-founder of IDEO and Director, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum 2010-12.Download RSA-US Student Design Award Briefs here.

They will include sponsor representatives, and other related industry, business and civic leaders. We will announce our panelists on our website once they are confirmed, along with more detailed judging criteria.


Internships and Awards are offered which are specific to the individual briefs.
