IFA (International Fashion Academy) Scholarships for Undergraduate and Postgraduate 2020, France (Full Scholarship)

IFA Paris originated from France and we pride ourselves in our strong French heritage. Whether you choose to study in Paris, Shanghai or Istanbul, our lecturers are mostly recruited from France. This approach provides students the French fashion heritage that can be felt as you begin your studies in either school. Having two locations also adds a different edge that mixes the classical side of fashion in Paris with the fast changing fashion and luxury world of Shanghai and the well-connected and the most strategic location for all kinds of trades of Istanbul to truly create a one of a kind learning experience.

IFA Paris is pleased to award three types of scholarships to support outstanding candidates according to their academic profile and financial situation:
  • Full Scholarship (100% free tuition)
    Deadline: March 15th, 2019
  • Excellence Scholarship (40% tuition fee reduction)
    Deadline: none
  • Distinction Scholarship (20% tuition fee reduction)
