New Program Offers Tuition Grants to Fashion Educators

Faculty teaching classLIM College has introduced a new tuition grant program for college faculty teaching fashion-related courses.

Fashion Educator Grants are designed for fashion instructors who have not yet earned a graduate degree. Grants cover 50% of the cost of tuition in any of LIM College’s Master of Professional Studies (MPS) degree programs.

MPS degree programs are available in Fashion Marketing, Fashion Merchandising & Retail Management, Global Fashion Supply Chain Management, and The Business of Fashion. These 30-credit programs can be completed on either a full- or part-time basis and are guided by expert faculty who bring decades of experience in the business of fashion. The programs in Fashion Marketing, Fashion Merchandising & Retail Management, and The Business of Fashion may also be completed in a fully online format.

In announcing the Fashion Educators Grants, LIM College President Elizabeth S. Marcuse noted, “For 80 years, LIM College has been the leading institution for education in the business of fashion and its related industries. Therefore, it is only natural for us to offer a pathway for fashion instructors to enhance their existing skill sets and facilitate their advancement in the realm of higher education.”

Dr. Susan Baxter, LIM College’s Dean of Graduate Studies added, “We are very excited to offer an affordable option for fashion educators to earn an advanced degree. The Fashion Educators Grant program recognizes these individuals’ commitment to education and the importance of their continued engagement in the fashion industry.”

To qualify for a Fashion Educators Grant, candidates must provide proof of full- or part-time employment as a faculty member in a fashion-related discipline at a community, junior, or four-year college.
