TDC Scholarship Program 2022



We are thrilled to announce Amelia Barry as the winner of the 2022 TDC Scholarship.

Amelia started AJB interiors in 2018 and has since worked on a range of residential projects throughout Melbourne and regional Victoria. Her focus is on creating beautifully designed homes that are both balanced and thoughtful, and are a true reflection of the people that live in them.

We were impressed with Amelia's commitment to transforming her business over the coming 12 months with the help of our coaching, classes, courses and programs. With a great combination of natural talent, tenacity and a "can do" attitude, we can see incredible things for the future of AJB Interiors.

What's the program about?

The TDC 2022 Scholarship Program aims to facilitate the personal and professional development of a member of the design community who shows the right aptitude, attitude and commitment. Someone who’s ready to commit to 12 months of life-changing growth and learning.


With access to 12 months of our classes, courses and coaching we will provide the 2022 TDC Scholar with all the tools, techniques, systems, and processes to completely equip them for future success. Success that will extend beyond work into all areas of their life.


The 2022 Scholarship Program will culminate in an all-expenses-paid prized place at our 2023 Byron Retreat. This transformational week will provide the Scholar with the opportunity to further extend their learning, whilst forging lifelong relationships with like-minded designers.


Who's eligible for the scholarship?

We want the Scholarship to be open to designers from all sectors, all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. You might still be at university, or you may have been working in your business for more than 20 years.


We want to know how this opportunity would change your life, and why we should choose you.


To be eligible, you need to be a member of the TDC community (it’s free) and need to have a registered design business. Applications are open to interior designers, interior decorators, architects, interior architects, stylists and entrepreneurs.
