Fash­ion schol­ar­ship

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

South Waikato on­line ex­porters are be­ing en­cour­aged to sub­mit an ap­pli­ca­tion for a re­cently opened fash­ion schol­ar­ship.

On­line ex­porters are in­di­vid­u­als who may be ex­port­ing their fash­ion or ac­ces­sory items, but who do not have a re­tail shop front, and are el­i­gi­ble to sub­mit ap­pli­ca­tions for the DHL Ex­press Fash­ion Ex­port Schol­ar­ship.

DHL, the world’s lead­ing ex­press and lo­gis­tics com­pany, is call­ing for emerg­ing fash­ion ex­porters to en­ter the fifth an­nual DHL Ex­press Fash­ion Ex­port Schol­ar­ship.

De­signed to iden­tify the coun­try’s hottest upand-com­ing fash­ion ex­porter and as­sist them in achiev­ing in­ter­na­tional growth, the schol­ar­ship is open to New Zealand de­sign­ers who have been ex­port­ing for less than four years.

A new fea­ture this year sees DHL Ex­press al­low­ing on­line ex­porters to en­ter the schol­ar­ship. This means fash­ion ex­porters who may not have a tra­di­tional re­tail front, but who ex­port on­line, are el­i­gi­ble for the schol­ar­ship.

The win­ner will re­ceive in­ter­na­tional freight to the value of $10,000, as well as coach­ing in freight and lo­gis­tics from DHL Ex­press.

All three fi­nal­ists will re­ceive in­di­vid­ual ex­port men­tor­ing and an an­nual mem­ber­ship sub­scrip­tion from Fash­ion In­dus­try New Zealand (FINZ).

En­tries for the schol­ar­ship opened on Oc­to­ber 1 and close on Oc­to­ber 29.

Ap­pli­ca­tion forms are avail­able from the FINZ web­site: finz.co.nz/DH­LEx­portSchol­ar­ship.
