Jon Bannenberg Scholarship for young designers announced

Jon Bannenberg Scholarship for young designers announced

Bannenberg & Rowell has announced the Jon Bannenberg Scholarship, which will give one UK or EU student a full-fee scholarship to study a master’s programme at the Royal College of Art School of Design in October 2016.

The scholarship will be awarded to an exceptional student, chosen by Bannenberg & Rowell and a panel of judges.

The scholarship is in remembrance of Jon, whose son Dickie is a director of Bannenberg & Rowell. “There was so much more to my father’s design ability than just yachts, and this scholarship recognises that by being open to anyone entering the School of Design,” he said. “Many times, Jon would draw for his clients round the breakfast or dinner table, upside down if necessary, and this scholarship will look to encourage that increasingly rare skill by placing great weight on drawing ability.”

Widely regarded as the father of yacht design, Jon Bannenberg’s skills transcended the yachting world. He worked on aircraft interiors, car interiors, furniture design and hotels, and it’s hoped the scholarship – which is open to anyone entering the Royal College of Art School of Design this autumn – will encourage students to develop their multidiscipline skills.

“Scholarships like the Jon Bannenberg Scholarship are life-changing,” said Professor Dale Harrrow, Dean of the RCA School of Design. “They enable the college to offer students, no matter their background or circumstance, the opportunity to undertake a postgraduate degree. Within the School of Design, we are very excited to have the generous support of Bannenberg & Rowell Design, and look forward to selecting the first recipient of the scholarship with them.”
