IFDA Educational Foundation Student Scholarships

IFDA-EF SCHOLARSHIPS REQUIRE A MAJOR IN INTERIOR DESIGN OR A RELATED DESIGN/FURNISHINGS PROGRAM, UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED. Scholarships are for undergraduate and graduate students attending U.S. institutions and all applications must be in English.  In four year institutions, scholarship funds are paid directly to the recipient's school earmarked for tuition and not paid directly to the student (see individual scholarship criteria for exceptions).  For two and three year programs, the scholarship may also be paid directly to the institution, OR it may be a special course rather than a monetary award.  Please read all of a particular scholarship's descriptions and criteria and eligibility before applying.
