Fashion scholarships are monetary rewards offered to students pursuing their education in fashion majors or a degree in a fashion that includes various fields such as styling, designing, manufacturing, apparel marketing, and others. A degree in fashion creates an image into one’s mind about models walking down catwalks and showing the latest trends from top designers. However, this is not what the fashion industry is only about. There are many more career options besides becoming a world-renowned and notable fashion designer. A degree in fashion can also lead to various careers such as

  • Costume design

  • Retail buying

  • Visual merchandising

  • Textile design

  • Public relations

  • Illustration

  • Styling

  • Writing

These wide options available in studies related to fashion are both short courses or Ph.D. programs. The programs might be varying in their coursework and duration and can also vary in regard to being general or specialized. They focus on developing practical skills and take a more academic approach.

What do fashion degrees cover?

Choosing to study a general fashion course, will make you learn about each stage involved in the fashion design process, from initial concept to the realization of a catwalk or store collection and the creation of an accompanying PR or advertising campaign.

Fashion is a demandable field of education and beneficial for a career. However, if you want to earn an undergraduate degree, postgraduate degree, or Ph.D. degree in Fashion you have to bear the load of a huge amount of tuition fee which may range anywhere between $4,000-$28,000 per year.

You can apply for various college scholarships that are exclusively meant for Fashion. Fashion design scholarships exist in fields of design and merchandising and, as they will be competitive, you’ll most likely need to show a scholarship committee why you’re their best bet for a particular award in the form of designs you’ve come up with other creative outlets you’ve pursued. Many will be awarded in the form of competitions, so you should be prepared to be judged against other bright talents from across the country. Fashion scholarship through schools specializing in fashion and merchandising will usually take not only your creativity into account but your academic achievements, as well, so it wouldn’t hurt to work on your GPA in between preparing those design portfolios.
