Fashion Scholarship
Fund Information:

The Fashion Scholarship Fund offers scholarships ranging
from $5,000-$35,000 to students interested in Design and Business. Once
awarded, students are also invited to take part in an industry mentoring
program and a summer internship. Scholars also are invited to apply for
seed-grants to launch their own start-ups. Though the name would indicate a
narrow focus on perhaps runway design, in practice the scholarship is supported
by businesses that include Adobe, Walt Disney, and Delta as well as well-known
apparel and homeware brands.

To apply, you respond to a case-study prompt with a
slide-deck. You can choose to apply in one of four categories.  The
categories, case-studies & application instructions are attached to this
email as well as linked below.
