Be Original Americas Announces 2017 Fellowship

Last year's Be Original fellows Sarah Ahart and Karina Campos at Design Within Reach. Read more about their experience.

Following a successful first year, Be Original Americas is once again offering a summer design fellowship in 2017. The program gives two students the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of manufacturing original design. 

Over a seven-week intensive program, the students will shadow top companies, such as Carnegie, Herman Miller, Vitra, and Bernhardt Design. Through visits with industry leaders that champion authentic design, the fellows will come away with an understanding of all sides of the business, from research, design, and manufacturing, to marketing, sales, and distribution.

Applications for the program, which will kick off on June 12 and be open to undergraduate students who have completed two or more years of study, are due by February 28. Apply here.
