Design My Costume are offering a $2,000 scholarship fund for U.S. high school students intending to pursue further study in fashion or similar subjects and trades. We understand how the ever rising costs of education are weighing heavily on students, and how taking on part or full time jobs to make ends meet can interfere with the pursuit of your chosen career. With this scholarship fund we hope to reduce some of this burden and free you up to focus exclusively on your studies. The scholarship fund will be divided up as follows: The winner will receive $1,000, the runner-up will receive $500, the second and third runners-up will receive $250 each. The amount awarded will be paid out as an education related expenditure in the form of either bank transfer or check. We are looking for students to submit essays on subjects related to clothing and sewing, preferably with a focus on embroidery machines, sewing machines, embroidery and sewing combo machines or the latest sewing and embroidery machines reviews. The scholarship prizes will be awarded based on the quality, resourcefulness, and unique content of the essay. More details and reference links are available on the scholarship page of our website. If you are a current high school student intending to study fashion or a similar trade through an accredited university, college or fashion school in the U.S. in 2017, then you're eligible to apply for the Design My Costume Scholarship. If you would like to submit an application for this scholarship, then go to our website, where you will find the application form available for download on our scholarship page. You will need to fill out your name and mailing details, and the essay should be a minimum of 400 words. You will need to attach a copy of your school or undergraduate transcript along with the application. To be considered for this year's scholarship, your application must be submitted by the 30th December 2017. The winners will be made public on the 15th January 2018. The process for accepting applications for the 2018 scholarship will open on the 1st January 2018. By applying for the Design My Costume Scholarship, you will be agreeing to have your name, photograph and essay published on our website, in our monthly newsletter, and on our social media pages, should you be awarded one of the prizes.
