 DutchCrafters Amish Furniture Heritage Scholarship

Introduction

The DutchCrafters Amish Furniture Heritage Scholarship was founded in 2011 as a way to give back to the community by offering education assistance to five outstanding students. This scholarship recognizes undergraduate students who draw upon their cultural heritage to shape their vocational aspirations, add creative value to their future employers, and serve their communities.

In 2003, many people had a hard time imagining the words "Amish" and "Internet" as compatible. Yet when DutchCrafters founder Jim Miller was looking for products to sell on an e-commerce platform that year, he found them within his own Amish and Mennonite heritage. Amish made furniture represented integrity, authenticity and long-lasting value – precisely the alternative to cheap imported products that were flooding the Internet at that time. By offering a high level of customer service that matched the quality of the products, Miller was able to differentiate his brand through looking within his own heritage. Old and new were therefore brought together – heritage served as a context for innovation.

Whether you are in nursing, education, business or engineering, the DutchCrafters Amish Furniture Heritage Scholarship recognizes that the potential for creative value often lies within that which has been passed along to you from previous generations.

How will you draw upon your cultural heritage to shape your vocational aspirations, offer creative value to your future employer, and serve your community

Scholarship Amount:

For the 2014-15 academic year, the DutchCrafters Amish Furniture Heritage Scholarship will award five scholarships of $500 each. Disbursements of the award will be made in two increments of $250 each – one for the first semester and one for the second semester of the academic year. The award payment will be forward by DutchCrafters directly to the college or university for distribution. Awards are for undergraduate study only.

The actual award amount will not exceed the total cost of the student's tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board and other allowable expenses, less other gift aid known at the time of application. The scholarship award is contingent upon full-time enrollment.

Application Deadline:

The application deadline is May 1, 2014 for the 2014-15 academic year. Scholarships received after this date will not be processed. DutchCrafters strictly adheres to the application deadline. Applications arriving at 12:01am or later on the morning after the deadline date will not be considered.

Application Forms:

The application consists of three parts:

Part 1) Application

Part 2) Statement of Financial Need

Part 3) 750 Word Essay

Essays are expected to be written in a formal paragraph form. Spelling and grammar will be considered in selecting the top essays. Style and creativity will also be taken into account.

Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Furthermore, DutchCrafters will not assume the responsibility of notifying applicants that their application is incomplete. DutchCrafters will not confirm or verify individual submission queries.

All application forms can be downloaded at DutchCrafters.com and mailed to:
