Kent State Fashion School listed as "Featured Fund" During University's Giving Tuesday Initiative

Did you know that one out of every five U.S.-based jobs is linked to international trade? The future of the fashion industry depends on those who have a significant understanding of global markets, trends and cultural insights. For this reason, all students who major in fashion must complete a study away trip in order to meet their graduation requirements. Our School is the first fashion institution in the country to include a required study-away experience as part of their curriculum. Now more than ever, it is vital to the education of all students to experience culture, economics and business outside of the boundaries of their campus. 

Celebrate Giving Tuesday today and join us by investing in an amazing opportunity to provide study away scholarships for fashion students. For every 15 unique donors who give $25+ to this fund, our School's fund will also receive a $500 Bonus Participation Boost from the Kent State University Foundation!

Our amazing faculty and staff have generously offered to match all gifts to the fund up to $1,000 which means your $25 gift becomes $50; $50 becomes $100!

Your gift will help those who demonstrate financial need to participate in one of the many unique study away opportunities required for their graduation.


Check out the video below to learn why study away is so important to our students' education.
