AHFA awards 10 scholarships

Publish date:

The American Home Furnishings Alliance recently awarded $25,000 in scholarships to the children of home furnishings industry workers.

Ten $2,500 scholarships were presented by AHFA’s Solution Partners division in April, which sponsors an annual golf tournament to support the scholarship fund.

“With the cost of higher education today, families need all the help they can get,” Mary O’Keeffe, executive director of Solution Partners, said in a statement. “Our program is unique in that it is not tied to any particular major, and the funds can be applied to a four-year college, a community college or a technical school.”

AHFA’s Solution Partners is comprised of more than 150 companies that supply products and services to the residential furniture industry. Next year, the division will add two more scholarships, increasing the award total to $30,000.
