At Rustica, our all-American sliding barn doors
are in high demand. From our outset 12 years ago, Rustica traditionally produced custom mantels
, home improvement and home furnishing items, and office furnishings
. But barn doors quickly proved to be a specialized, homegrown favorite. No matter the product, we pride ourselves on using the best possible materials and producing everything here in the USA. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is located in Art City, Springville, Utah. Our customers take pride in owning Rustica-built products and because of them, we can continue to “build America.”
About the Rustica Scholarship
At Rustica, we understand that education is critical for all generations. The life experiences and lessons you learn at an educational institution are important, no matter the career path you intend to follow. We want to help students in their paths to higher education, which is why we have created the Rustica scholarship.
If you share our goal of “building America” using environmentally friendly practices, we want you to submit an essay for the chance to win one of two prizes. For our Rustica Scholarship, $2,500 will be awarded for the fall semester and a further $2,500 for the spring semester.
The Rustica scholarship is open to all students, regardless of major.
