FIDM students Stefanie Sauri and Ethan Martin at FSF Gala

Students Ethan Martin and Stefanie Sauri Win 2022 Fashion Scholarship Fund Award

Congratulations to students Ethan Martin and Stefanie Sauri on winning the 2022 FSF Scholarship Case Study Competition, each awarded a $7500 scholarship for their case study analysis. The students traveled to New York City where they were honored at the Fashion Scholarship Fund’s annual gala celebration, FSF LIVE, on April 11, 2022.

The evening’s program was hosted by Tony and Grammy Award-winning actor and singer Renée Elise Goldsberry and included an exhibition of work from FSF’s Class of 2022 Scholars, a series of personal stories of inspiration from this year’s competition finalists, and tributes and honors that made it an unforgettable evening.

The students were challenged to create case studies in the areas of Design and Product Development, Marketing Analytics, Merchandising, and Supply Chain.
