SCHOLARSHIP HEROES

Thanking NEWH Scholarship Sponsors and
Catching up with Past Recipients

P

/Kaufmann Contract, an NEWH Corporate Partner since 2011 has been sponsoring
the NEWH Interior Design $10,000 scholarship since 2018. The scholarship is open to
hospitality-focused interior design students from Fashion Institute of Technology, Pace
University, Parsons School of Design | The New School, Paul Smith's College, New York School
of Interior Design, or Pratt Institute. The scholarship will be awarded this year during the
BDNY Virtual Conference.
"NEWH plays a vital role in bringing talented professionals together and facilitating a vibrant exchange of ideas across the
hospitality industry," says P/Kaufmann Contract vice president of design and marketing Leigh Douglass. "One of the most exciting
intersections of talent and ideas comes from their work nurturing young designers through scholarships. As a family-run business,
we celebrate the contributions of the next generation in the belief that great things happen when innovation meets tradition. We're
proud to sponsor the P/Kaufmann NEWH annual scholarship and thrilled to welcome design graduates into the hospitality family!"

"Winning a scholarship from NEWH helped me fully concentrate on my studies with
reduced financial burden. The support from P/Kaufmann Contract was also a huge
encouragement for me to continue my research in material innovation for the field of
interior textiles. I graduated in May 2020 from Parsons School of Design's MFA textiles
program and will continue my career as a textile artist and decorator who consciously
integrates science and technology into art and design, and a textile designer who
dedicates to healthy and sustainable solutions.
Through my work, I want to transform textile making into a truly sustainable
future that is nature-based and eco-friendly; a system that is unhurried by seasonal
trends, and one that is harm-free, slow, and mindful. My dream job is to collaborate
with people from different backgrounds in order to create spaces that bring joy and
comfort, as well as spaces that are interactive and can provoke conversations. This
was how I became passionate about the hospitality industry, which crosses between
interior design, lodging services, food and drink services. and event planning."

"Winning the NEWH scholarship sponsored by P/Kaufmann Contract gave me much
more than money. Although it paid almost a full semester for me, which lifted a great
burden from my family, it also introduced me to the hospitality A&D community. I made
great connections that led me to an amazing internship, and where I made friends for
life. I'm looking forward to graduating this fall. I'll be searching for my first full-time
interior design job during the pandemic. I'm expecting that it will be challenging, but I
know that I will make it through. Whether I stay in the U.S. or move to Europe, NEWH is
always there to help.
My dream job would be to have my own practice. I would want to design and
manage a hostel brand around the globe, especially in places where it's less likely to
find them. Building and designing experiences for travelers gives me joy. I find the
industry to be the most open, accepting, and interesting so far."
