Be Original Americas Launches Worldwide Virtual Student Fellowship

Non-profit advocacy group Be Original Americas is launching its first international virtual student fellowship. From June 15 – July 17, 2020, over 25 design companies, makers, and creators will present a series of webinars that offer insights from leading brands to a global audience of students.

Each session will focus on a different aspect of the design process and provide an inside look into the factories, architecture and design studios, and headquarters of Be Original Americas member companies around the world creating authentic design.

This virtual student fellowship was developed in place of Be Original Americas Annual Design Fellowship, in which two students won the opportunity to visit studios and companies, and speak to industry professionals in person in multiple cities. Due to the current situation, this iteration allows for many more students around the world access to these member companies.

The opportunity is available to currently enrolled university students. Students around the world are welcome to attend. To register and receive updates, visit:
