SCE Names This Year’s Yabu Pushelberg Scholar

In fall 2016, the Toronto-based interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg provided a generous gift to endow a permanent, named scholarship for a student in the Interior Design Program at Parsons. This scholarship honors the firm’s ongoing commitment to excellence in design education and its dedication to the promotion of creativity and imagination of young designers.

This scholarship provides critical financial support which will enable one student each year to take on a rigorous academic curriculum and to engage in experiential learning opportunities at Parsons. As a permanent endowment at Parsons, The Yabu Pushelberg Scholarship at Parsons will help many students to advance their art and design education — and move forward in creative careers – for years to come.

The Dean and Faculty of the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons are pleased to announce the 2020/21 academic year winner of the Yabu Pushelberg Scholars Program:  Kimberly Cooks, AAS Interior Design degree program candidate.

Parsons would like to acknowledge the work of all Yabu Pushelberg finalists: Pasqualino Capozzi (AAS ID), Ashley Cloud (MFA ID), Carmen Cordova Guandique (BFA ID), Tanishkaa Kumar (BFA ID), Yuxuan Qian (MFA ID), and Annabelle Schneider, (MFA ID).
