  2. Take a look at the case-study prompts  and  instructions.  Choose one category and develop a slide-deck.
    1. Business Strategy
    2. Design & Product Development
    3. Marketing analytics
    4. Merchandising
  3. Open the application portal where you'll take an eligibility quiz and later upload your slide deck. Open your app as soon as possible so that you can take part in the Fashion Scholarship program's summer webinars and receive important updates from the foundation.  
  4. Take your time on the case-study, and do your research. Most applicants do not already have extensive experience with all of the ideas/strategies/elements the case study covers, so you will need to do some research.
  5. Get feedback on your slide deck. Be sure to ask faculty in your field as well as peers for feedback. 
Selection Process

    • The rubric is included in each of the case studies.
