Registration has recently opened for the 2016/2017 competition cycle of the RSA Student Design Awards.
RSA wants to empower a generation of savvy, employable graduates who realize the potential of design to benefit society. It challenges students and recent graduates to tackle pressing social, environmental and economic issues through design thinking.
Winners are rewarded with cash prizes, paid industry placements, complementary RSA Fellowship and a range of other benefits to kick-start their careers. Different cash prizes are available for each brief.

- Life-long learning and development
- Sustainability and the circular economy
- Fostering a more inclusive, tolerant society
- Empowering people to live longer, healthier lives
The competition is open to current students and new graduates from anywhere in the world. Both individual and group entries are eligible.
