Joseph Sadony IV Receives Esteemed Celia Moh Scholarship
Joseph Sadony IV, (Senior, Furniture Design) has been selected to receive a prestigious Celia Moh Scholarship for the upcoming academic year. This extensive scholarship pays full tuition, room, board, books, and fees for its recipients, and renews for each undergraduate year.
Sadony, along with six other students attending universities around the country with home furnishings programs, was notified of his selection last month.
The Celia Moh Scholarship was established in October 2001 by furniture industry entrepreneur Laurence Moh to honor his wife, Celia. The scholarship program was established to provide full tuition scholarships for the most exemplary college students whose academic endeavors would lead to careers in the home furnishings industry.
Scholarship nominees are hand-selected by their universities. They then must complete a rigorous application process which includes an extensive questionnaire, a personal essay, instructorsâ?? recommendations, and a college transcript illustrating exceptional academic achievement. A scholarship committee comprised of notable home furnishings industry executives selected Sadony and the other students. The seven scholarship recipients join three returning students selected as Celia Moh scholars last year, including Kendallâ??s Andrew Golombisky. Nearly sixty full scholarships have been awarded in the programâ??s nine-year existence.
