Interested in fashion and costume design?

From IndieWire:

Oscar-nominated costume designer Jacqueline West and the Fashion Institute Of Design & Merchandising have created a scholarship for an outstanding Native American interested in the study of fashion or costume design. The Scholarship is open for entry now and will be awarded in early Fall 2016.

In order to encourage youth of Native descent to enter the world of costume design and to raise awareness of careers in the design arena from fashion to costume design for theatre and film, the Scholarship includes a visiting internship with West.

The scholarship is open to youths of Native American descent who are eligible to enter college in the fall of 2016. Applicants should send an essay of why they would like to win the scholarship along with up to five fashion/costume sketches to:

Jacqueline West
C/O Shirley Wilson Public Relations
FIDM/The Fashion Institute Of Design & Merchandising
919 South Grand Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90015

Sketches may be of fashions or costumes from any time period. All applications must be received by July 31, 2016. This fashion or costume design scholarship is valued at $35,000, including full tuition fees, books, and supplies; it does not include transportation, living expenses, or incidentals. The recipient of The Jacqueline West Scholarship will be announced in August 30, 2016 for matriculation in October 2016.  The winner’s sketches and fulfillment of other requirements will be judged by a panel including West and FIDM officials.

Good luck!
