Zalora offers scholarship for tertiary studes.

Online fashion site Zalora is offering scholarships for tertiary students: The merit-based scholarship will award seven tertiary students from across the region with a partial grant on tuition and industry experience with the Zalora offices in 2016. This is the first time the Zalora Group is giving out scholarships.

Applicants are encouraged to think creatively and bring out the science behind fashion through compelling means. Winning entries will be selected based on innovation and relevance to the title: "The Science of Fashion."

Michele Ferrario, managing director of the Zalora Group, said: "We believe that this scholarship is an excellent initiative to attract and nurture passionate young individuals in the area where e-commerce meets fashion. Contrary to what many may think, fashion is not just another art form. There's always the scientific aspect behind fashion and design, and especially so for Zalora as an online fashion retailer because we live and breathe digital. It's our hope that these young bright minds will appreciate that."

The scholarship is open to all students from tertiary institutions that fall under Zalora Partner Institutions in Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. One student from each of these countries will be offered a scholarship and the chance to gain valuable insights from the e-commerce industry.

Interested students are given until October 16, 2015 to submit their applications.
