Deadline: 22nd May 2014
Preference will be given to applicants who clearly aspire to produce innovative new work that aligns with the College vision of “Better Lives” through the power of fashion. For 2013/14 we are keen to encourage applicants who are engaging with new concepts of beauty for diverse communities of age, race and ability. The key criterion for the awards is a research focus on "Looking Ahead".

Recipients will be offered opportunities to engage with the research community at P&G and the broad networks of Matts, Black and Sams while work is in progress.
There will be two awards of £5,000 each. To apply, submit your project proposal electronically (no more than two A4 sides/1000 words plus any appropriate visuals) and 500 words on how this award would help you.
