FIT bursaries presentation 2011
As we all know, students are facing challenging financial circumstances, so it's great to see this initiative by the funiture industry.
The industry's charity, the Furnishing Industry Trust (FIT), in association with the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers, has just launched a bursary scheme. The first awards were made to two MA students studying at Bucks New University during Interiors 2011 at the NEC this January, along with additional funds to help third year BA students with the costs of their course materials.
Pictured are Penelope Williams (chairman of FIT's benefit committee) presenting to Harry Owen (BSc Product Design) and Edward Tadros, Chairman of FIT (and of ercol!) presenting to Cristiana Lonescu (BA Contemporary Furniture Design).
