Top 10 Furniture/Interior Design Scholarships

Have you ever looked into academic scholarships? They are much more available than you would think. With a little research, you can find hundreds worth applying to. We put together a list so you’ll have somewhere to start if you’re interested in furniture/interior design. You might be thinking, why should I apply for scholarships in the first place? There are a bunch of great reasons!

First and foremost, the financial benefit is huge. Student loan debt is a hot topic in the US and many current and former students know, it can take a toll on your finances. Any way to reduce the amount of student loans you have to take out is a good thing. The easiest and cheapest way to do this? Apply for scholarships! Scholarships range from $500 to thousands of dollars. It costs nothing to apply, and most scholarships have relatively basic requirements. They’ll require that you maintain solid grades (usually between a 3.0-3.5) and you write an essay describing why you should be picked to receive the scholarship. There’s really nothing to lose!

A couple other huge benefits are the effects that scholarships can have on your education and career. Having financial scholarships allows you to focus more on school and less on wondering how you’re going to pay for everything. Taking classes and having multiple jobs is a recipe for disaster. Being able to focus on class will lead to you having better grades, maintaining good grades, and being more successful overall. When it comes to your future career, scholarships are great to put on a resume when applying to your first “real” job. Receiving a scholarship shows recruiters that you maintained great grades, worked hard, and beat out possibly hundreds of other applicants. In a highly competitive job market, it could give you the edge you need to land your dream job!

Now that we’ve established why scholarships are something worth considering, it’s time to check out our awesome list of resources:
