In May 2013 Palm Springs Modernism Week proudly awarded two $1,500 scholarships to deserving Palm Springs High School seniors, Lillian Johnson and Ingrid Gomez-Rodriguez. The Modernism Week scholarship program was initiated in 2011, and since then a total of $27,000 has been awarded to help further the education of students who have chosen career paths in architecture and design.

“Modernism Week’s annual scholarship program is a significant motivator behind everything we do,” explains Lisa Vossler Smith, Executive Director of Modernism Week. “In addition to supporting the first year of college, the scholarships are renewable for three additional years because we are committed to supporting the duration of the student’s undergraduate education; and we hope they will soon be leading the way in their chosen fields.”
