DAE COLLABORATES WITH DIFFERENT FUNDS AND PARTNERS TO STIMULATE NEW TALENTS THROUGH AWARDS AND GRANTS. THIS UPCOMING GRADUATION SHOW – OCTOBER 17-25th, 2015 – THE WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED. 

 

KEEP AN EYE GRANTS

The Keep an Eye Grant is an incentive of € 11,000 which was created specifically for DAE students to ensure that projects made by these talented young graduates do not run aground for financial reasons. Every year, a panel of judges decides which four graduates will receive a Keep an Eye Grant. The prestigious Keep an Eye Grant is funded by the Keep an Eye Foundation, www.keepaneye.nl.

Among all our graduates, 20 projects are nominated for 4 Keep An Eye Grants. We would like to congradulate these students with the nomination!

The DAE also recognizes talent through the departments. The Gijs Bakker Award, Rene Smeets Award and Milky Way Award are handed to the graduates who show most promise – either from a professional point of view, through showing great individuality or by combining research, insight and creative design.

GIJS BAKKER AWARD (MASTERS)

As of this year the honour will be awarded annually to the most outstanding master student graduating at Design Academy Eindhoven (DAE). It complements the long-established René Smeets Award for the best bachelor student project. 

Each of the three master departments – Contextual Design, Social Design and Information Design – nominates two candidates. An expert jury then selects the winner who will receive a prize certificate and 2.000 euros. The jury selects the student whose thesis research and design project demonstrate outstanding skill and imagination, tenacity and originality, personality and relevance to the profession and the outside world. These criteria reflect the foundations of the DAE master programme that was initiated by designer Gijs Bakker.
