National Scholarship Awards are funded through the Foundation and are coordinated by the Education Committee. Our scholarships are awarded once each year.

Submissions are made by applicants and adjudicated by a panel of CDP Certified designers and educators from across the country. Recipients receive financial awards that are applied directly to tuition fees.
