"Nothing inspires me like teaching, and nothing engages my passion more than design. Together they form a perfect fit, a blend of passion and inspiration I hope I can pass along to my students."

Charles M. Boggs | Interior design professor

Few know better than Cydney Clinton (B.F.A. interior design) the impact SCAD faculty can have on a student. Khoi Vo, SCAD interior design chair, recommended Clinton to enter the Angelo Donghia Foundation’s 2015 Student Scholarship Program in Interior Design. The result? Clinton netted a $30,000 scholarship as one of the program’s 14 honorees.

“It’s a wonderful affirmation of her work, and it speaks volumes about the interior design department’s ability to prepare students for their profession.”
