The DutchCrafters Amish Furniture founded the Heritage Scholarship in 2011. Applicants need not be Dutch Amish, or even majoring in woodworking. These scholarships recognize undergraduate students who draw upon their cultural heritage to shape their vocational aspirations, add creative value to their future employers, and serve their communities.
Whether you are majoring 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. This scholarship application asks that you draw upon your cultural heritage. How does that heritage shape your vocational aspirations, offer creative value to your future employer, and serve your community?
