With a long history of leadership in sustainable design, Steelcase, the global manufacturer of office furnishings, is looking to identify ways that design, defined broadly as products, services or business ventures, can be used to improve lives. They have funded the scholarships as a means of supporting the next generation of product designers who understand the opportunity to align environmental and social goals with cutting-edge design.
