About the Scholarship Competition

Fashion Group International of Dallas pays homage to the next generation of fashion designers and merchandisers with its annual scholarship competition event. Heading into our 55th- year tradition in 2023, we are proud to have awarded over $1 million to talented students from fashion schools, colleges, and universities in the Southwest region. Through FGI Dallas events, donations, members, community sponsors and supporters, we make it possible.

It has been an extraordinary past few years as we have been challenged under the unprecedented circumstances of a pandemic. FGI Dallas has been very proud to have continued awarding scholarships via virtual events in 2020, 2021 and 2022. In addition to monetary awards averaging $40,000 each year, students the FGI Scholarship Competition awarded summer internships with local designers, industrial sewing machines and study abroad with the Paris American Academy in Paris.

We are thrilled to present this year’s theme, Fashion Forward: Motivating Minds in Design with our first in-person event since the pandemic began in 2020. In addition to awarding our scholarship winners, we are providing additional learning opportunities for our attendees through interactive programming with local fashion professionals. Save the date and experience the Student Competition on April 14, 2023.
