MODERNISM WEEK SCHOLARSHIPS

Awards-2
In May 2014, Palm Springs Modernism Week proudly awarded two $6000 scholarships ($1500 per year for 4 consecutive years) to Palm Springs High School graduates Jose Rodriguez Galicia and Ricardo Gustavson.

The Modernism Week scholarship program was initiated in 2011 and since then 11 scholarships totaling $66,000 have 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 consecutive 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.”
