College Scholarship

Congrats Claire King on winning the 2018 $1000 scholarship!

Inspired Design Wins $1,000 College Scholarship 2019 for Claire King

Taking a scientific approach to the art of studying, Claire King, a student at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., applied her passion for art and design to create a stunning space dedicated to promoting good study habits that would make any dorm dweller drool. Her delightfully detailed inspo board would definitely inspire us to hit the books, which is why we were happy to award her with our annual $1,000 College Scholarship.

Claire looks forward to using the scholarship to continue her education at Catholic U., where she's majoring in English Language and Literature. She loves attending classes there, she says, because "it's the center of the arts district in D.C., and I love working with kids in the arts. I work at different centers in my community and work with kids at art camps. I also volunteer abroad teaching English to kids. I also do art within the community, like mural painting and collaborations with other artists."

This obviously talented young woman has a bright future ahead. Check out how she used product samples from in her inspiring design and you'll see why!

Congratulations, Claire!
