Winning FIDM’s Designer of Tomorrow Scholarship Competition was merely his first step in a long line of fashion awards, public recognitions, and international acclaim.
FIDM was thrilled to announce that FIDM Alumna Leanne Marshall, a recipient of FIDM’s Designer of Tomorrow Scholarship Award, won First Place in last year’s Project Runway!
The Women’s Jewelry Association Scholarship Committee awarded $20,000 in scholarships to 11 students from 10 different schools across the nation. This year they received 64 applicants from 34 different schools. The two different scholarships currently offered are the traditional Designer Scholarship based on slide entries of finished pieces and the Non-Designer Scholarship category, which is essay based. The new Non-Designer category is targeted toward students training to become bench jewelers, appraisers, gemologists, retailers, etc.
Projects are accepted from high school seniors or graduates who have not had any prior college-level training in the category of the competition that they are entering. The competition is open to US Citizens and Permanent Residents only.
Each of the six winners will receive a one-year scholarship to attend FIDM valued at the cost of the current tuition, fees, books, and most supplies of that specific FIDM major.
