Learn about our history

 
 

The Decorators Club Education Fund, Inc. was established in 1960 to support interior design education. The Fund sponsors two different competition programs that award monetary grants to students in six New York area college interior design programs. These grants are made possible by the proceeds from fundraising events and our Jacqueline Beymer Lebenthal Lecture Series, established in 1991, and by the generosity of corporate, media and individual sponsors.
