One of our principal roles is to engage, inspire, and mentor students who are considering a career in design. Student membership grants you the same access to events, discounts, and opportunities as a professional membership, but at a reduced rate.

AIGA encourages the formation of student groups at colleges and universities and is committed to developing these groups as a way of encouraging students to take the first step in demonstrating a commitment to their professional interest and assisting them in understanding the profession. The goal of the student groups is to get the student involved in the local design community, create a community of their own and help them build leadership skills that will be valuable as they move into the professional world.
