Students of affiliated New York Eleven schools will be eligible for the Genuine Design scholarship after viewing the "Stand Up For Design" seminar online or by DVD.  Applicants must then write a 2-4 page essay on one of three questions regarding design authenticity.     

Deadline for submissions: February 23, 2009 – Participating schools will review all of the entries and select a pool of no more that 3 finalists from that school.
