CFDA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

About

In 1986, the CFDA established an endowed scholarship at Parsons School of Design, in

memory of Member and previous president Perry Ellis.

 

In 1996, the CFDA Scholarship Program was created to award annual merit-based scholarship

grants to students in their junior year of study in a four-year, full-time college level fashion

design program.

 

The Clara Hancox Scholarship Fund was established in 2007, to support the next generation of

menswear designers. Clara Hancox reported for the Daily News Record (DNR) from 1944-1993,

and was a great friend to the menswear industry. Each year, the CFDA will select one aspiring

menswear design student from among the applicants within its existing Scholarship Program to

receive the Clara Hancox Scholarship Award.

 

The CFDA Scholarship Program is highly competitive, and entrants represent the best from the

country’s top design colleges and universities. The CFDA Scholarship Program has awarded

$1,399,250 to students since its inception.
