Merchandising scholarship

Starting in 2015, apparel merchandising students have had a chance to compete for the $1,000 Lora and Russ Talbot ISU Fashion Show Merchandising Scholarship. The project is designed by a local or national apparel company with the intent of solving a specific merchandising concern within the firm. We are excited to announce that we will be partnering with Versona of Des Moines to develop this case study.
