Founded in 1937, the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund (FSF) is an international non-profit organization composed of influential members of the fashion industry. The Fashion Scholarship Fund’s goal is to advance the fashion industry by encouraging gifted and enterprising young people to learn about different types of opportunities in the fashion industry.
Students who win this scholarship will be invited to the FSF Awards Gala in New York City (expenses paid by the YMA FSF). The Awards Gala includes networking and information events with company recruiters in the fashion industry, a FSF career fair, and the FSF awards dinner. The YMA FSF helps scholars to find internships and jobs in the fashion industry and matches scholars to mentors working in the fashion industry.
