You’re the Student. You’re the Designer.

You get to make it happen!

Student Application

Design the Future is open to all students with all backgrounds and experiences. One of the key principles we emphasize during the program is that of “Radical Collaboration.” This is the concept of bringing together individuals with vastly different backgrounds and experiences to offer multiple perspectives on a problem. Every individual has a unique perspective and we value that. If you’re worried you might not fit in, we encourage you to believe in yourself and submit the application below anyway. Admissions are rolling and preference will be given to early applicants. If you still have more questions you’d like answered, email

Pricing and Payment*

The program cost is $1,950 for accepted students who apply before April 1st, 2017 and $2,100 for students who apply after this date. A payment form will be sent upon acceptance to the program.

Students are encouraged to apply early as spots may fill up before the final deadline on June 14th, 2017.
