Gensler will review submissions and invite finalists to submit a digital video introducing themselves creatively to the jury and presenting their work. Based on these videos, one or more individuals selected as winners will be awarded an academic scholarship paid directly to their college or university. Winners and finalists may also be considered for a paid internship at a Gensler regional office in the summer of 2014 and paired with a Gensler mentor who may serve as a resource during the internship and final academic year.
