Burberry Expands Scholarship Program for Underrepresented Students

Supporting creative arts scholars at Parsons School of Design and more.

Building on its scholarship program at the Royal College of Art, Burberry is expanding the initiative to support students at Parsons School of Design in New York City, Institute Français de la Mode in Paris and Central Saint Martins in London. Though specifics on how the scholarships will be distributed remain sparse, the program will help diversify creative arts at all three schools by benefitting students from “underrepresented communities.”

At Parsons, scholarships will go to graduate students enrolled in a range of fields including Architectural Design, Interior Design and Fashion Marketing and Communications. Central Saint Martins undergrads in Fashion Design, Textile Design, Jewelry Design, Fashion Communication and Graphic Communication will be eligible for support while in Paris, scholarships will be limited to those enrolled in Institut Français de la Mode’s undergraduate Fashion Design program.

“In order to truly diversify the talent we bring into this industry, we have to meaningfully commit to diversifying our talent pipeline,” Eric Bourne, Burberry’s chief people officer, said of initiative’s expansion. “This starts before the workplace, in education…I look forward to seeing how these promising, talented individuals develop into the next generation of creative leaders, bringing their uniqueness to the industry.”
