AN EDUCATION: The British Fashion Council on Thursday named the three designers who have won MA scholarships for 2015 via its British Fashion Council Education Foundation.
They are Benny Andaloo, a BA graduate from Central Saint Martins, who will study the MA Fashion Men’s Wear course at CSM; Gabriella Sardena, a BA graduate from Manchester School of Art, who will study the MA Fashion Textiles course at CSM; and Shaun Harris, a BA graduate of Kingston University, who will study for an MA in Fashion Women’s Wear at the Royal College of Art.
The BFC Education Foundation is a registered charity, and the scholarship scheme is funded by donations from Coach, Marks & Spencer, Net-a-porter and Eiesha Bharti Pasricha. The initiative funds both BA and MA scholarships, with fees for BA courses for U.K.-based students at 27,000 pounds, or $ 42,500, excluding living costs, and MA fees at around 9,500 pounds, or $ 14,900. The scholarship initiative is also supported by the British government with its employer ownership funding program, which allows employers to invest in the skills of a future work force.
Past recipients of the scholarships include Erdem Moralioglu, who won in 2002, and Aitor Throup, who won in 2004.
Nelly and Nas also create their own scholarship funds.

In 2005, the FSF began a partnership with the Geoffrey Beene Foundation to underwrite the event and to establish the Geoffrey Beene National Scholarship Awards for which the foundation has donated $ 5 million to the FSF.
