CFDA and the Swarovski Foundation announce Re:Generation Innovation Scholar AwardIn honor of Earth Month, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and the Swarovski Foundation are launching a new annual scholarship for full-time undergraduate BFA or BA college students that supports sustainability innovation in fashion. Through this three-year partnership, the Re: Generation Innovation Scholar Award will offer a $30,000 grant, and provide “meaningful mentorship to help them grow their exemplary potential to transform fashion through ingenuity,” according to a press release, to one winner per year. “Design students have a unique ability to use the creative process to examine sustainable development and lay the foundations of a new and better future for this industry,” Nadja Swarovski said, in a statement. “Their creative expression through fashion is a vehicle for evolution — not only for trailblazing concepts and products, but also for societal changes in thinking and behavior.” {Fashionista Inbox}
