In the wake of everything that's happened in the last week, it's more important than ever that we come together to empower young women across America. Womenswear brand TOBI is going above and beyond even to do just that. Through their TOBI Cares Initiative, TOBI will give a $3,000 scholarship and a $200 shopping spree on Tobi.com to one lucky fashion-minded college student.
"At TOBI we are inspired by stylish, successful women from all walks of life and aim to inspire the next generation of young women to pursue higher education, leadership and of course, personal style," the brand said in an e-mail announcement. "A woman's success is our success and we hope to pay it forward by broadening horizons and creating equal opportunity throughout our communities."
To be considered for the scholarship, you must be an undergraduate student enrolled in a four year or community college. The application consists of three 200-word essays related to your personal style and how it's shaped your success, your career aspirations and educational goals and what makes you a good candidate to receive the award. "By just answering three questions we are looking for a candidate who is passionate about their personal style, can share what their style says about them and explain if there is a correlation between their personal style, their mindset, goals and success," says a representative for the brand.
Applications must be received by Dec. 31, 2016, and the winner will be notified by e-mail on Jan. 17, 2017. For more details on the contest, visit TOBI's website.
