Winners Announced for 2018-2019 Celia Moh Scholarship

Three new students have been selected to receive the Celia Moh Scholarship for the 2018-2019 academic year. 

Recipients this year are Ryan Decker, a senior industrial design major at Appalachian State University; Cole Dignard, a junior industrial design major at North Carolina State University; and Annina Fremgen, a senior furniture design major at Kendall College of Art and Design.

Two other students, Addison Gantt from High Point University and Kate Hyman from Kendall College of Art and Design, return as Celia Moh scholars for their senior year of study.

The Celia Moh Scholarship is considered one of the preeminent academic scholarship programs for students bound for careers in the home furnishings industry, paying full-time tuition and fees, room, board, and books for its recipients. In addition, the scholarship hosts an annual networking and resource-building trip to the High Point Market, and provides informal internship and career guidance for its scholars, as well as offering an active alumni network for former scholars who are now in the home furnishings industry.

Established in 2001 by furniture industry entrepreneur Laurence Moh, best known as the founder of Universal Furniture and later, Fine Furniture Design, to honor his wife, Celia, the program’s strategically managed endowment has provided 100 full scholarships in 17 years, exceeding $4.2 million in awards.

Scholarship candidates are hand-selected by their respective universities and then must complete an extensive application questionnaire, write a personal essay, obtain instructors’ recommendations, and provide a college transcript illustrating exceptional academic achievement. A scholarship committee comprised of notable home furnishings industry executives selected the students from a pool of premier candidates from six universities across the country.
