Eden Travel International Design Award

Eden Travel International provides an internship for an undergraduate student juried into the ITAA Design Exhibition held in conjunction with the ITAA Annual Conference. The two-week internship is served at the Zandra Rhodes design firm in London, England.  The award consists of reasonable travel expenses to and from the student's home airport to London, accommodation (room only) while in London, and internship arrangements with the design firm for the two-week summer internship.  Food, entertainment, health insurance, travel insurance, and all living expenses other than room, are to be provided by the student.  Unless special arrangements are made with Eden Travel International, Ltd., the award internship is to be served during the summer following presentation of the award. The specific dates are subject to the head designer at Zandra Rhodes.  If, due to unforeseen circumstances on the part of Zandra Rhodes, the internship must be cancelled, the winning student shall receive a monetary gift.  
The Eden Travel International Award is determined by interest of the student as presented in the award application and design potential as determined by the selection committee at the ITAA Annual Conference.
