CFDA/Teen Vogue Scholarship, in partnership with Target


In 2011, the CFDA/Teen Vogue Scholarship Program, which had previously been a nationwide scholarship competition for high school students, was re-positioned as  an exclusive opportunity for full-time sophomore fashion design students who  attend one of CFDA’s Participating Schools. All awards are based on merit, and monies will be used towards the students’ tuition and/or educational expenses.

Target  makes a significant donation annually to help endow this program. To recognize Target’s unwavering dedication to support emerging design talent, the top winner is awarded $25,000 and the title Target Fashion Scholar. In addition, Target arranges for supplemental learning opportunities on the Target Fashion Scholar’s behalf – including a trip to their headquarters in Minneapolis to work with the Target Design team.  The winner attends and is announced at the annual CFDA Fashion Awards in June.

Five (5) additional students were selected to win awards each in the amount of $5,000. Winners were selected based on design talent and their mood board presentation, in addition to answers contained within their written application.
