Scores of multi-national firms support Study Fund 2013 for art and design students in Italy

Two Italian art and design schools have come together with a horde of major retail, design, fashion and technology companies to offer €1m in funding to students in need of financial aid. Grants will be offered to potential students with the intention to open up the creative pool and encourage those who may wish to pursue a career in art- or design-led industries to do so, regardless of their economic circumstances.

The schools involved are Domus Academy Milan and NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belli Art Milan. A lengthy list of multi-national firms have pledged their allegiance to the cause, including: 7 For All Mankind; Adobe; Alfa Romeo; De Beers Group; Club Med; Coca-Cola; Tic Tac; Future Concept Lab; Kobalt Entertainment; Park Hyatt Milano; Fiat; and Fondazione Ferre.

“We firmly believe in the importance of Italian design and would like to support young creatives in their quest to achieve successful careers in the field of design and fashion design,” said Marc Ledermann, CEO of Laureate Italian Art and Design Education. More information can be found here.
