The mission of the Fashion Scholarship Fund is to advance the fashion industry by encouraging gifted and enterprising young people to pursue careers in design, merchandising, retailing and business, ensuring the industry will continue to attract dedicated, capable and creative individuals.



As the premier educational fashion non-profit in the United States, the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund (FSF) seeks to identify and create career opportunities for young people worldwide.  We grant the single largest sum of money and total number of scholarships in the entire industry, supplementing financial support with a rich curriculum of comprehensive programs for scholars offering hands-on experience with the world's top fashion companies and most influential leaders. 

 OUR Impact: 2016 By The numbers



We believe in the value of education and giving back to the industry that has given us so much, and one of the best ways to do that is to support the bright young fashion leaders of tomorrow.  Learn more about what your tax-deductible contribution means for the future of fashion.
