“These design and architecture students have offered incredible perspectives on the future of how we will live in our built environments. We’re so pleased to help these students pursue their goals and dreams. The caliber of applicants and their essays for the Houzz Scholarship program is extremely impressive,” says Liza Hausman, VP of industry marketing at Houzz.

Houzz says scholarship program “supports the next generation of residential design and architecture pros,” targeting students studying architecture, interior design and landscape architecture. The scholarship program requires students to submit a brief essay on their design and architecture influences, and invites them to create a Houzz professional student profile, where they can showcase and share their portfolio of work.

Houzz presents scholarships twice yearly, in the spring and fall, and is now accepting applications for spring 2018. The deadline is December 15, 2017.
