Regent’s University London and Bloomsbury Publishing sew new fashion marketing scholarship

London: In a world-first partnership, Bloomsbury Publishing and Regent’s University London have launched a new fashion marketing scholarship that will give one student an exclusive industry internship with the leading publishing house and £4,000 towards the cost of their programme.

Launched alongside Regent’s University London’s new MA International Fashion Marketing, the Regent’s University London-Bloomsbury Fashion Scholarship is worth £4,000 towards the cost of the new MA programme, as well as providing the winning student with an internship and mentoring from Bloomsbury, plus unparalleled access to their award-winning digital archive resources.

Bloomsbury’s Head of UK Academic Marketing, Jennifer Howell, said:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Regent’s University London on this exciting venture. As far as we’re aware, this is the first partnership of its kind internationally, linking a publisher with a university to support fashion marketing students.

“The Bloomsbury Fashion Scholarship will be a fantastic opportunity for an MA International Fashion Marketing student to intern with us in the fashion section of our academic marketing division. The winner of our joint scholarship will have the opportunity to contribute to Bloomsbury by working on a wonderful array of high-quality print and digital fashion publication projects.

“As part of the scholarship agreement the graduate student will also receive full access to our award-winning Bloomsbury Fashion Central digital platform, a place where students can find everything they need for their fashion studies.”

Gill Stark, Head of the School of Creative and Liberal Arts at Regent’s University London said:

“This is a fabulous new joint scholarship between Regent’s University London and Bloomsbury Publishing. It is a natural collaboration as we are in central London, Bloomsbury are based in central London and London is one of the most influential fashion capitals globally. Our students study in a part of London that is buzzing with fashion and the scholarship is a wonderful opportunity for a student to become part of that fashion zeitgeist.

“The scholarship is a part of our new MA International Fashion Marketing programme, which brings together two disciplines for which Regent’s University London is internationally renowned – fashion and marketing – to provide future fashion marketing managers and directors with the practical and intellectual skills to lead and succeed in the vibrant and fast-changing fashion industry.”

The scholarship is now open to applicants who have been accepted into Regent’s University London’s new postgraduate MA International Fashion Marketing that will begin in September 2017. Applicants for the scholarship are required to submit an essay on fashion marketing and prove they meet the full eligibility criteria here.
