WithIt Foundation

Scholarship

WithIt Scholarship Foundation

WithIt established the scholarship foundation to recognize and nurture the academic endeavors of talented college students enrolled full-time in fields of study that would logically lead to careers in the home and furnishings industries.

Since 1999, WithIt has awarded over $218,000 in scholarships to qualified young women. But it doesn’t stop with the scholarship. Once the scholarship has been given, then WithIt creates internships, provides mentoring, brings the student to our annual conference, and watches over these students during their education hoping to keep their talents connected to our industry.
