Two University of South Carolina Department of Retailing students will receive scholarships to travel to New York City and attend New York Fashion Week events from Feb. 9-12, 2023.
The scholarships will be offered through a partnership between the university's College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management and Office of Trademark Licensing and CLC/Learfield's UofNYFW program.

The winners will be chosen by Department of Retailing faculty and leadership. Students with a Fashion Merchandising and Digital Innovations concentration will be given priority, as will students with a strong GPA and history of leadership/service endeavors.
Students interested must submit a resume and letter of interest along with relevant leadership and service examples via email to Department of Retailing Chair Jeffrey Campbell (email@example.com) by 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 20, 2022. Winners will be notified via email no later than Nov. 29.
