Geoffrey Beene and the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund


YMA and the Geoffrey Beene Foundation formed a strategic alliance with the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund in 2007 to further the mutual goal of expanding support for students seeking careers in the Fashion Industry. The Geoffrey Beene Foundation has donated to the YMA FSF more than $5 million committed through 2017.

Since the beginning of 2008, the FSF has been granting four Geoffrey Beene National Scholarship Awards (now for $30,000 each) to enterprising students majoring in fashion and related disciplines (design, merchandising, finance, marketing, retailing and liberal arts), as well as four $10,000 Geoffrey Beene National Scholarships for each of the four runner-up finalists.
