Stella McCartney to donate scholarship money to Central St Martins in London 

In  other fashion school related news, Stella McCartney recently announced that she will be creating a scholarship for expectional students in the Central St Martins MA program.  

Here are some deets on the new Stella McCartney Scholarship:

“The Stella McCartney Scholarship will fund home, EU and international MA Fashion students on the basis of academic excellence and financial need, and will also include a one year paid placement working at Stella McCartney fashion house. McCartney will offer £25,000 of funding each year”

There is a catch however designers who receive the scholarship will have to adopt a vegan design philopshy meaing no animals products will be used what so ever. I can see how many might find this idea stifiling but after all it is her money and I think it is right that she maintains her brand alignment. This scholarship opporunity will be available as early as October 2012.
