Fashion Nest, a renowned Fashion School in Ghana has launched its first financial aid package to support brilliant and passionate individuals who seek to nurture their talents into first-class professionals in the fashion industry.
The school has thus set up a scholarship endowment fund worth GHS 50,000 for interested students, especially students who reside in Accra to enrol in its well-rounded fashion and design courses.
This 6-month program will commence on 27th July 2020 and the financial aid benefits are interest-free for the first 18 months.
Fashion Nest looks forward to fueling many dreams, just like Anna’s – a recent graduate from Fashion Nest School.
Having benefited from a full scholarship, Abugre Anna Ayaaba believes the school’s scholarship program will provide the much-needed relief to qualified persons while they strive to achieve their career goals.
“Following a Reuters’ report that Africa could lose an estimated 20 million jobs, we foresee many people requiring entry into skill development programs,” the firm said in a statement.
“The school’s board anticipates a wave of financial difficulties that will plaque many individuals who desire to build a reputable career in fashion and design but genuinely need financial assistance. This scholarship program serves as the school’s stimulus response to the projected impact of the coronavirus outbreak. Ultimately, we pooled together resources to support the aspirations of these individuals,” Fashion Nest noted in a statement.
Beneficiaries of the scholarship program will undergo the school’s comprehensive academic curriculum. They will also be enrolled in a 3-month internship program with our partner fashion houses upon completion.
Course modules offered at Fashion Nest include Fashion Illustration, Garment Construction, Pattern Drafting, Entrepreneurship and Creativity and Design.
The deadline for scholarship applications and general admissions are in mid-July, 2020.
“Scholarships offered to students will be on a need basis. All applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis hence individuals who seek to be beneficiaries of this financial aid are encouraged to apply early as spots are limited and competitive,” the school said in the statement.
