BFC Foundation Scholarships Applications Now Open

The British Fashion Council (BFC) is delighted to announce today that applications for the BFC Foundation Scholarships are now open. Students can submit their applications here until Sunday 23rd August 2020, 5pm.

All scholarships are awarded by the BFC Foundation (Registered Charity Number: 1185152) with financial support to students to complete their courses. The BFC Foundation brings all of the BFC’s charitable initiatives under one umbrella; supporting the future growth and success of the British fashion industry by focusing on three areas: Education, Grant-Giving, Business Mentoring and the Institute of Positive Fashion.

Scholarships are available to those who have an offer from, or currently studying an MA or BA at a BFC Colleges Council member college*. Non-British students are also eligible to apply for the scholarships. All interested students need to apply via the BFC website.

Education is at the heart of the BFC Foundation. At this time, the support of upcoming talent establishing pathways through education is more critical than ever.
