Morehouse College, the historically Black college for men in Atlanta is partnering with the London and New York-based elite fashion house, Huntsman Savile Row to prepare enterprising business, mathematics, and computer science majors for success in their future careers. The company has established The Huntsman Savile Row Scholarship for Morehouse students.
The scholarship provides financial support to Morehouse students and gives them access to signature professional development opportunities. Each Huntsman Scholar receives a fully custom-made Huntsman suit to outfit them as they pursue excellence in graduate school and the workplace. In addition, Huntsman Scholars also participate in mentoring activities and coaching sessions with company executives.
Monique Dozier, vice president of the office of institutional advancement at Morehouse College, stated that “we are looking forward to creating a strong pipeline that would allow more Morehouse Men to work as business executives, designers, and market influencers in elite fashion houses and in fashion media.”
