(NEW YORK) Michael Kors is helping finance next-generation talents to walk through the doors of his alma mater, FIT, through a lifetime endowment scholarship of $1 million. The Michael Kors Endowed Scholarship entails gratis tuition, housing, and books for one lucky, in-need student per year, kicking off for the Fall 2013 semester. The first recipient will be selected this summer. "I attended FIT in the late ‘70s, and the school provided a totally comprehensive curriculum for fashion design that is unparalleled,” the designer said in a statement. “Since my days there [FIT] has evolved and become even stronger." Kors actually dropped out of the NYC institution to kick off his career, but his endowment includes a work-centric element as well. Besides fiscally supporting a stellar FIT student in need, the designer-sponsored scholarship involves a major resume boost, in the form of an internship at Kors. Bonne chance, FIT students!
