DutchCrafters Amish Furniture Heritage Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $500
Awards Available: 3
Award Deadline: May 1, 2024

The DutchCrafters Amish Furniture Heritage Scholarship was founded in 2011 as a way to give back to the community by offering education assistance to 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.

For this school year, DutchCrafters Amish Furniture will be awarding three outstanding students $500 each to further their educational goals.

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?
