Be Original America’s first-ever design fellowship is debuting this summer. The seven-week program is a collaboration with design companies, including Carnegie, Chilewich, Design Within Reach, Bernhardt Design, Emeco, Herman Miller, Ligne Roset and Vitra. Applications close April 25.

The program will “introduce two college students to all facets of creating innovative, high-quality products, from research, design, and manufacturing to marketing and distribution, through hands-on, in-the-field learning. Each section of the fellowship will focus on a different aspect of the process from the perspective of Be Original Americas member companies, supplemented by visits to their showrooms, headquarters and factories in New York City and throughout the United States,” announced Be Original Americas.

The fellowship is open to currently enrolled students who have completed three years of study at an accredited college or university in the United States. Students currently enrolled in industrial design, interior design, architecture and entrepreneurial programs, or who have a demonstrated interest in a career in the design industry are encouraged to apply.
