The Lake Design Foundation Fund
The Lake Design Foundation was founded by Lawrence Lake, an award winning Interior Designer, Furniture Designer and founder of Sources for Design, a digital design magazine and media company focused on the Arizona Design Community. The Foundation is focused on identifying, nurturing and supporting emerging talent in the Interior Design Profession. Supporting Interior Design students with financial scholarships used to lighten the financial burden of college and freeing them to learn and create the leading designs of tomorrow.
The scholarship seeks to identify developing interior designers with an understanding of the skills of the profession and who have a personal sense of style and design vision. Identifying emerging talent beyond the norm, supporting their vision, and seeking to encourage their development as the design Icons of the future.
The submission includes a short written statement about you and design, submission of an existing project, and images that inspire you. The format is simple to allow creative expression, but the standards are high to demonstrate talent and skills.
The selection committee is looking for a unique combination of design vision, personal style and presentation skills, the key indicators of the leaders of tomorrow.
