Nine Celia Moh Home Furnishings Scholorship Recipients Selected

Furniture World News on

Nine students were recently selected to receive the esteemed Celia Moh Scholarship for the 2008-2009 academic year. Students from selected universities around the country with home furnishings programs were eligible to apply. This year’s recipients are: Nicholas Blair and Lillian Stoltz, Kendall College of Art and Design; Emma Neidert and Ashley Albrecht, High Point University; Irina Skalova and Anne Michener, East Carolina University; Hugh Owings, Joel Valente, and Katherine Watts, Appalachian State. The Celia Moh Scholarship was established in October 2001 by furniture industry entrepreneur Laurence Moh to honor his wife, Celia. The scholarship program, funded by Mr. Moh’s initial gift of $3 million, was established to provide full tuition scholarships for students whose academic endeavors would logically lead to careers in the home furnishings industry. The application process requires candidates to complete an extensive 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. The nine scholarship recipients join five returning students selected as Celia Moh scholars in previous years. Forty-eight full scholarships have been awarded in the program’s seven-year existence.
