The form·Z Joint Study Program involves universities and some high schools worldwide. This is a program through which AutoDesSys Inc. subsidizes the learning of digital tools by offering the use of form·Z in academic departments that are interested in educating their students in the articulation of three dimensional forms. Since its recent release bonzai3d is also made available. At the end of each academic year AutoDesSys collects projects that were created through this program.
One of the traditions the program and its journal have established is the presentation of annual awards for the exceptional work of deserving students.
All Awards of Distinction receive a form·Z RenderZone Plus license with one year technical support and updates. Honorable Mentions receive diplomas acknowledging the award and a one year user license.
