The Celia Moh Scholarship is considered one of the most prestigious scholarships available for undergraduate students studying in the home furnishings field. The scholarship covers full tuition, room and board, fees, and books. Scholars are also invited to a networking and resource-building trip to High Point Market and are provided with informal internships and career mentoring.
The Celia Moh Scholarship has now provided more than $4.2 million in scholarships to 92 recipients over the past 15 years, and their network of alumni remains incredibly active and supportive to new scholars.
“The Celia Moh Scholarship is such an important opportunity for our students at KCAD,” says Associate Professor and Furniture Design Program Chair Gayle DeBruyn. “We are so proud to have two such talented students chosen, and we look forward to seeing what Kendra and Nicole will continue to create as they make use of the many benefits and experiences afforded by this great honor.”
