Interior Design student awarded industry scholarship

Fourth year Bachelor of Interior Design student Amy Schell received a $500 scholarship from the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO) at the organization’s Annual General Meeting held Wednesday, March 29 at the Toronto Hilton.

Mandated to regulate the interior design profession in Ontario, ARIDO sets standards for its membership that include education and professional development requirements and adherence to a Code of Ethics and Practice Standards. ARIDO is the only professional organization for interior designers in Ontario.

Schell was nominated for the CTI Working Environments Student Scholarship by ARIDO’s Grand Valley chapter. The award is given to students who go beyond the curriculum by giving back to their community and volunteering for ARIDO.

Conestoga’s Bachelor of Interior Design co-op program focuses on architecture and interior design and relies heavily upon project-based learning. The program was designed in consultation with ARIDO and is on its list of recognized interior design programs.
