2012 SCHOLARSHIP

Joe's Blackbook is committed to supporting and nurturing the next generation of designers. To that end, Joe's Blackbook will award a $10,000 scholarship to one womenswear design student and a $10,000 scholarship to one menswear design student.

Juniors at top U.S. Design schools will compete for two scholarships via the project outline below. Designers and employers from leading industry companies will judge the submissions in a two-stage process. Based on their creativity, originality, presentation, and strength of concept, the six candidates selected in the final round will earn an all-expense paid trip to New York City to present their projects to a panel of judges. Previously, finalists for the Joe's Blackbook Scholarship displayed their work to head designers of Vena Cava, Unis, Shipley & Halmos, Siki Im, and Madewell.

Award money is given to the winning candidate's school to be applied toward his/her senior year tuition.
