SEFA Student Design Contest

SEFA Student Design Contest
SEFA Student Design Contest is open to high school juniors and seniors, and to full-time college students who are enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at a college or university located in the U.S. Students compete for scholarships by creating innovative designs for any piece of laboratory equipment or furniture.

Students may submit individual entries or in teams of up to three students. Entering the design contest consists of submitting an essay that clearly describes their idea for any piece of laboratory equipment or furniture. Applicants will draw from their lab experience at high school or college when creating a piece of lab furniture that will increase the way students learn in the lab.

Three scholarships will be awarded, including first, second and third place winners. In addition to the essay, applicants must submit a video of up to 5 minutes that shows a digital 3-D rendering of the furniture, the actual completed piece of furniture, or a prototype of the furniture piece.

The scholarship is offered by The Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association (SEFA), a member-based organization created in 1988 to meet the needs of lab designers and manufacturers in the laboratory furniture industry. The goal of the organization is to create safe lab environments. They are located in Garden City, New York.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MAY of each year, and the award amount is usually $1,500 - $6,000.
