Jefferson Fashion programs walked away with multiple winners from this year’s 2022 Fashion Scholarship Fund (FSF) case study competition, an accomplishment that is quickly becoming a tradition at the university. Twelve students each walked away with $7500 scholarships, which are awarded under 2 headings: FSF Scholars and Virgil Abloh Post-Modern Scholars.
Of the 45 schools & programs that participated, only one other school had more award recipients than Jefferson. FSF receives over 450 student submissions from across the country each year.
Eight Jefferson students were named FSF Scholars, each earning $7,500: fashion merchandising and management (FMM) sophomore Adriana Cameline and junior Sydney Amster; and fashion design juniors Lyla Duffy, Hailey Nicchi, Lauren Schuler and Carly Vlachos, and fashion design seniors Danielle Davis and Kinley Lingenfelter (her 4th FSF win).
An additional four students earned the $7,500 Virgil Abloh Post-Modern Scholarship from the FSF. Established by the fashion design leader and icon who recently passed away after a private battle with a rare form of cancer, the scholarship supports the next generation of Black fashion industry leaders. The Jefferson winners include: FMM senior T’yanna Neely and fashion design juniors Jamesether Koigbli, Kierra Lee and Samuel Stern.
