Annette Culhane, Scholarships Director for NEWH UK said, “The student awards are a result of year of fundraising events throughout the year, supported by NEWH UK members and sponsors. I’d like to thank this year’s sponsors, Sanderson Design Group, Lutron, and Cruise Ship Interiors Expo. In my role as Scholarships Director for the NEWH in the UK, I actively encourage students to enter our annual Scholarships Competition. It’s not only an amazing opportunity for students to showcase their skills, but to meet and network with industry professionals leading to possible job opportunities and career development. I’m delighted we can award three scholarships this year as  I’m sure it will make a big difference to our winning students”.
