  • Scholarship Description
    The John J. Nelson Sr. Legacy Scholarship Fund was created to support and nurture African American interior design and architecture students while promoting diversity and access in education. Nelson is a known champion of design education, diversity, and unfettered access to education. This scholarship was established by Nelson in partnership with the IIDA Foundation in 2019.

    The John J. Nelson Sr. Legacy Scholarship is open to undergraduate students of African American descent who are currently enrolled in a U.S. not-for-profit CIDA- or NASAD-accredited interior design or NAAB-accredited architecture program. Students must submit a 3-to-5 minute video articulating how the power of design has already impacted their life, and how they will proactively leverage their career in design to positively impact their future clients and community.
