The FUTURE FWD Scholarship has been created to advance equality and inclusion in graphic design education. The £30,000 scholarship provides material costs and living expenses for a student over the three year BA Graphic Communication Design degree at Central Saint Martins, University of The Arts London, as well as access to mentorship throughout the course and a paid internship opportunity with one of the studios.

The FUTURE FWD Scholarship is supported by design studios Zak Group, Pentagram and Some Days.
