Ms. Levy announced the winners of their Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) Diversity Scholarships, which benefit FIT and students of diverse backgrounds interested in pursuing a career in fragrance. This comes on the heels of The Fragrance Foundation’s #FragranceForwardTFF initiative to advance diversity, which was launched last fall. The Fragrance Foundation FIT Diversity Scholarship is a one-of-a-kind opportunity that serves as an ongoing investment in the industry’s future as well as a pillar of support in allowing more diverse students to pursue their passion for fragrance through a meaningful, industry-focused education at FIT.
