Stelona values giving back as well as having an impact on upcoming generations. With these values, we will partner with the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund (FSF). Our CEO, Lydia, was a scholar in 2018 and 2019 which gave her first hand experience on the impact that the FSF has on upcoming talent in the fashion industry.
The Fashion Scholarship Fund supports the careers of the country's most promising fashion students from all backgrounds. It awards over $1.2 million each year to help students succeed in all sectors of the industry: design, merchandising, analytics, marketing and supply chain, among others.
The FSF also provides scholars with coveted internship and career opportunities, mentorships, networking, and access to the industry's most influential leaders and companies.

A note from the CEO:
The Fashion Scholarship Fund awarded me $12,500 within the two years I was a scholar. That money allowed me to finish college debt free! The awards gala in January for all of the scholars is in New York City. Awards gala weekend was my favorite way to start out the year. While there, FSF conducted a career fair with exposure to several companies setting up a way to enter the fashion industry. The night of the awards gala, we have the opportunity to meet recruiters, C-level execs, and other talented students within the fashion industry. Internships and mentorships are easier to find because of this organization. The best thing about FSF is that the connections and relationships carry on after graduating college. They have exclusive events, and an accelerator grant for alumni to further assist scholars in jump starting into a successful career. To support this is to support thousands that will have an impact on what the future holds. That is why Stelona will partner with FSF.
