About

The Sarabande Scholarship was established by the late Alexander McQueen CBE to provide undergraduate and postgraduate students experiencing financial hardship with an equal opportunity to study fashion.

The Foundation offers scholarships to ensure that the creative talent of gifted, yet disadvantaged students, can flourish in their academic studies and creative development.

The scholarship will be assessed on the basis of financial need and academic merit. It will provide a contribution of £6,000 per annum towards living expenses and course costs for the duration of the course except the placement year.

Applications are encouraged from students who are unable to finance themselves through their studies but are gifted with an abundance of talent and dare to challenge the status quo.

Applicants must have a raw, original talent complimented by a strong drive to succeed in the fashion industry.
