About the FABRIC Apparel Entrepreneur Scholarship


Our mission is to provide apparel entrepreneurs with training, guidance, innovative industry resources, and access to no-minimum manufacturing, so they can build sustainable fashion businesses domestically.

One way we do this is by providing access to a digital road map that guides apparel entrepreneurs through the hundreds of steps in business startup, branding, marketing, design development, and manufacturing. Then we provide scholarships into this roadmap to select entrepreneurs.
