WithIt, a non profit organization supporting women in the home furnishings industry, established the Scholarship Foundation (501C3) to recognize and nurture the academic endeavors of preeminent college students enrolled full-time in fields of study that would logically lead to careers in the home and furnishing industries.


Since 1999, WithIt has awarded over $132,000 in tuition scholarships to qualified young women in areas of study that apply to the home industries: Accessory Design, Architectural Design, Forestry, Furniture Design, Textile Design, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Interior Architecture, Sustainable Design, Marketing or majors related to the home and furnishing industries.

Over 20 years, 99% of WithIt scholarship recipients remain in the industry.

Students must be a full-time college sophomores or juniors in good standing at the time of application. Student scholarships are presented annually in July and funds must be used for tuition at an accredited institution of higher learning. In addition to tuition money, scholarships include a WithIt student membership, paid tuition to the annual professional conference, a mentor in your field and assistance in securing an onsite internship at a furniture-related business.


In 2017, WithIt extended their scholarship awards to women in the industry who are continuing their education. Applicants need to have worked for a company in the home and furnishings industry for 5 years.


In 2018, WithIt established a fund to honor founding member Kathi Cunningham to help women in the industry attend the annual conference. The scholarship provides assistance with the conference registration fee. Nominations are submitted annually by members.
