Bernhardt Design and George Little Management team up annually to sponsor ICFF Studio, which is presented each May during ICFF. The scholarship program is a juried competition created as a platform for young designers to showcase their existing prototypes to manufacturers, retailers, and the media. Studio has been a career catylyst for a number of past participants including: Brad Ascalon, Viable London, Chris Adamick and Nolen Niu, who manages his Los Angeles based studio and showroom.
The ICFF Editor’s Award has been received by past participants Emi Fujita and Shane Kohatsu for the Best New Designers in 2007, and Sophie Mallenbranche won Best Textiles in 2006.  Numerous publications have featured the work presented at ICFF Studio including: Business Week, Fast Company, ID, Metropolis, The New York Times, Surface, and Wallpaper.
