Five $2000 study grants are available from Building Designers Association Victoria (BDAV) for outstanding student members this year.  

The study grants will help building design students as they continue their study and move into employment. To be eligible for the award, applicants must be a student member of the BDAV and currently studying a building design course.  

BDAV Executive Officer, Brian Morison comments that the grants to support five outstanding building design students continues the long held BDAV tradition of nurturing the next generation of building designers.  

According to Mr Morison, these students represent the future of building design and the BDAV has a commitment to supporting and assisting them. He adds that building design students in Victoria have a strong commitment to the principles of sustainable built design.  

To qualify for the study grants, eligible students must submit two essays describing their motivation for studying building design, as well as their career goals following the completion of study.  

The entries must also include a business plan outlining how the $2000 grant will be spent. All applications must be received by 4pm on Thursday 30 June.
